Muad' Dib Verdict 11/11/2010
11/11/2010 Dublin—The Irish Supreme Court ruled today to uphold the extradition of Anthony John Hill, also known as Muad'Dib, for sending DVDs of the widely popular "7/7 Ripple Effect" to the jury foreman and judge, in c/o a British courthouse.
The Irish Supreme Court's decision was to facilitate the British government's demand, through Westminster Magistrates Court, and an European Arrest Warrant, and surrender Mr. Hill to face charges for simply mailing DVDs of the "7/7 Ripple Effect” (with no letter) to the Kingston Crown Court, during the original trial of Waheed Ali, Sadeer Saleem and Mohammed Shakil. The British government had hoped to use the trial to lend credence to their "official story", which they failed to do when the 3 young men were found innocent.
About 35 to 40 supporters of Muad'Dib attended the extradition hearing at the Irish Supreme Court. The hearing was heard in a small courtroom known as the Hugh Kennedy room, rather than the primary Supreme Court room, probably to limit the publicity and room for supporters. The room was full, with about half a dozen supporters standing at the back.
The following is an account of what took place in the Irish Supreme Court. It is not a verbatim account, and has been transcribed from rough notes taken by Richard D. Hall during the trial, and added to by others, so the quotations and statements are not word for word.
