Pakistani Ambassador has private meeting with Federal Judge in ongoing NYC al Qaeda trial

W.T.F. If true, why is a U.S. federal judge meeting with a Pakistani Ambassador regarding an ongoing trial? Why are they having any private meetings at all? What was discussed? From the Ibrahim Sajid Malick Blog.

Federal Judge, Richard Berman, has also ruled on the side of the prosecution in nearly every motion. One of the most surprising, say legal experts, is when he allowed statements that Dr. Siddiqui made while at a hospital in Bagram to be used against her although she had not been “Mirandized” This refers to the Miranda Laws that direct law enforcement officials to identify themselves to an arrested individual and to advise that individual of their rights, including the right an attorney.

This ruling came a day after Pakistani Ambassador Hussain Haqqani, had a private meeting with Judge Richard Berman, which he described as “positive”.

The lone comment at the blog suggests doing exactly what Siddiqui is accused of, killing Americans.

  1. If this meeting did not take place, there is quite a bit of propaganda being fed to Pakistani’s and Siddiqui supporters. Another site claims this:

    Pakistan Ambassador in Washington DC, Hussain Haqqani will meet with Judge Richard Berman in the Southern District of New York chambers Wednesday morning to discuss progress of Dr. Aafia Siddiqui’s trial.

    Pakistan embassy’s spokesman Nadeem Kayani told Examiner last night that Ambassador will speak to the media after his meeting with Judge Berman.

    Pakistani Times reported:

    At the start of the trial, Pakistan Ambassador to the United States Hussain Haqqani was welcomed by US District Court Judge Richard Berman. The ambassador watched the proceedings from the visitors gallery where a special chair was placed for him. Earlier, Haqqani paid a courtesy call on Judge Berman in his chamber.
