U.S. Will Use Foreign Intelligence Surveillance in Case

Oct. 26 (Bloomberg) -- Federal prosecutors said they will offer into evidence “foreign intelligence information” in a criminal case against a man accused of attempting to provide support to an overseas terrorist organization.

U.S. Attorney John Walsh in Denver notified the federal court and lawyers for Jamshid Muhtorov in a court filing yesterday that the government will introduce the information collected under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act.

The government “intends to offer into evidence or otherwise use or disclose in proceedings” in the case “information obtained or derived from acquisition of foreign intelligence,” according to the filing.

The case against Muhtorov was filed last year. According to a superseding indictment in March 2012, Muhtorov and others conspired from January 2011 to January 2012 to provide support for the Islamic Jihad Union while knowing it was a designated terrorist organization.

Greg Holloway, a prosecutor in Walsh’s office, and Kathryn J. Stimson, a lawyer representing Muhtorov, didn’t immediately return calls yesterday after regular business hours seeking comment on the filing.

The case is U.S. v. Muhtorov, 12-cr-00033, U.S. District Court, District of Colorado (Denver).
