The Appeals court having remanded the issues of whether diplomatic immunity blocks Alex Saab Moran's money laundering case from prosecution back to the District Court, we note this new filing. It is a notice that the attorney who is seeking that relief has refled a temporary appearance for that limited, specific purpose only, and is not counsel with a general appearance through trial and appeal.
This indicates that Saab persists in his claim, which is a mystery, because he obviously is either in plea negotiations, or he has already committed to a deal with the United States. In that case, why continue to flog this claim ? Is it part of his counsels' negotiating strategy, attempting to eke out some additional benefits ? This case raises more questions than it answers.
