Yeah, it’s no fun living for the rest of your life in solitary confinement, in a space as big as a small bathroom, but that’s what happens when you’re a convicted terrorist.
But hey, good luck with that lawsuit!
The only individual in the United States convicted over his involvement in the 9/11 attacks has filed a lawsuit against President Donald Trump over claims he is experiencing “psychological torture” while kept in solitary confinement.
Zacarias Moussaoui, currently serving a life sentence at the Supermax federal penitentiary in Colorado for his planned involvement, has filed handwritten lawsuits in federal courts in Oklahoma and Colorado alleging mistreatment at the hands of prison authorities.
He goes on to claim that prison guards have assaulted him and also keep him “total isolation without access to a lawyer” in an attempt to “break” him psychologically.
The 49-year-old, who describes himself as the “slave of Allah” and the “so-called 20th hijacker,” accused federal authorities of trying to hide the identity of the “true” 9/11 conspirators and called on civilian and military judicial officials to help him with his case.
Moussaoui, a French citizen of Morrocan descent, was first arrested in August 2001 on illegal immigration charges after causing alarm at a Minnesota flight school when he revealed he wanted to learn how to fly a Boeing 747.
