In an article appearing in The American Lawyer, the two defense attorneys for the Iranian sanctions evader ALI SADR HASHEMINEJAD state that the reason his case was dismissed, after a guilty verdict was handed down at trial, was solely because the US Attorney's Office improperly withheld exculpatory evidence available prior to trial. In an effort to show all sides of the issue, we are publishing the interview below, in its entirety.
We do, however, believe that there are other reasons why the Government chose to dismiss the case, and that they should be fully investigated. Were the Discovery "errors" actually intentional, and if so, who ordered that the case be deliberately sabotaged ? Given the extraordinary number of strange dismissals linked to partisan political goals we have seen in 2020, these questions deserve answers.
