Judicial Watch Slaps Subpoena on Iraqi Ambassador to United Nations
Thursday March 27, 2:51 pm ET
Testimony, Documents Sought on Iraq's Involvement in Oklahoma City Bombing and 1993 World Trade Center Attack


WASHINGTON, March 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Judicial Watch, the public interest group that investigates and prosecutes government corruption, today served a subpoena for testimony and documents on Mohammed Al-Douri, who serves as Saddam Hussein's ambassador to the United Nations. Judicial Watch is suing Iraq for victims of the April 19, 1995 bombing of the Murrah Building in Oklahoma City, OK. A default judgment is pending against Iraq in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. The suit alleges Iraqi government involvement in the conspiracy with Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols to blow up the building. (A copy of the complaint is available on the Internet at www.judicialwatch.org.)

As Iraq has a history of using its diplomatic corps to perpetuate terrorist conspiracies, Judicial Watch believes Ambassador Al-Douri has information concerning not only the Murrah Building bombing but the related 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center. Judicial Watch's lawsuit cites reporting from Philippine intelligence and law enforcement sources concerning meetings between convicted Murrah Building bombing accomplice Terry Nichols and Ramzi Youssef, the mastermind of the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, during Nichols' travel to the Philippines between 1990 and 1994. Additional evidence obtained under the Freedom of Information Act reveals Interpol's efforts to apprehend two additional Oklahoma City bombing suspects and information in the agency's files associating Ramzi Youssef with the attack. (Suspected September 11 mastermind Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, now in United States custody, has also been linked to the 1993 World Trade Center bombing and Youssf through the Philippines.)

"The Oklahoma City victims of Iraqi-sponsored terrorism want answers. We are seeking testimony and documents from Al-Douri to help unmask the truth about Iraqi government involvement in terrorist acts on United States soil," stated Judicial Watch Chairman and General Counsel Larry Klayman.
