American Scene: Charges against Muslim cleric dismissed by judge
MIAMI — A Florida federal judge has dismissed terrorism support and conspiracy charges against a Muslim cleric accused along with his father of funneling cash to the Pakistani Taliban.
U.S. District Judge Robert Scola ruled Thursday there was insufficient evidence against 26-year-old Izhar Khan. He is an imam at a mosque in suburban Margate north of Fort Lauderdale.
Judge Scola ruled that Izhar Khan’s involvement in two transactions totaling $1,100 did not show he was supporting Taliban fighters. Charges against another of Hafiz Khan’s sons were dropped earlier by prosecutors.
Hafiz Khan is on trial for four terrorism support-related charges that each carry maximum 15-year prison sentences.
