Yassin Aref and Mohammed Hossain’s conviction was upheld by the Second Circuit Court of Appeals. Below is a statement from the Muslim Solidarity Committee, the community group formed 2 years ago to support Yassin Aref, Mohammed Hossain, and their families, regarding the Second Circuit’s decision of today:

The Muslim Solidarity Committee is extremely disappointed with the 2nd Circuit’s ruling. We will continue to work for justice for Yassin Aref and Mohammed Hossain, whom we believe are innocent of the government’s fictional terrorist charges. And we will continue to support them and their families, as well as the Capital District’s Muslim community, all of whom have been greatly harmed by this miscarriage of justice in our community.

If you need any more information, please let me know. I’m a member of the MSC, and authorized to speak on the group’s behalf.

Thank you,
