Nigerian "underwear bomber" sues US Govt for allegedly violating his rights

Share

In a lawsuit filed Wednesday and obtained by CBS, Abdulmutallab claims that the Department of Justice is violating his First, Fifth and Eighth Amendment rights.

In 2012, Abdulmutallab was moved from a MI prison to the Supermax facility in Florence, Colorado, 90 miles south of Denver, which houses some of the country's most notorious criminals, CBS Detroit reported.

Abdulmutallab is serving a life sentence at a Supermax federal prison for attempting to light chemicals he had secreted onto a plane in his underwear in 2009 on Christmas.

The victim's mother reported the assault at Casper police department, where the girl told the police that "it hurt inside". He had pleaded not guilty on both charges in May during an arraignment hearing before the Natrona County District Court.

Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, a Nigeria native who became an al-Qaida operative, alleges he's being held in long-term solitary confinement, has been forced to eat foods forbidden by his religion, endured harassment yelled by white supremacist inmates saying things offensive to Muslims and has been prohibited from communicating with relatives, including nieces and nephews.

Abdulmutallab, the son of a corporate titan, trained at an al Qaeda camp in Yemen under the direction of USA -born Muslim cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, according to the Justice Department.

It says of 154,000 people incarcerated by the Bureau of Prisons, Abdulmutallab is among less than 30 who have special administrative measures, and alleges that he shouldn't be placed under the restrictions because his communications don't risk "death or serious bodily injury to persons" or property, which is a requirement of the SAMs. Abdulmutallab, a Muslim, is not allowed to "participate in group prayer". In response, prison officials transferred him to an even more restrictive part of the prison known as Range 13, where human contact, even with guards, is rare.

Abdulmutallab's lawyer, Gail Johnson, claimed his client's rights under the Religious Freedom Restoration Act were being violated.

The suit said Abdulmutallab has gone on hunger strike to protest his alleged treatment and has been repeatedly force fed.

"Prisoners retain fundamental constitutional rights to communicate with others and have family relationships free from undue interference by the government", she said. On one occasion, it said, they inserted the tube into his windpipe rather than his esophagus and poured the supplement into his lungs, making him feel like he was being drowned.
