LAWFUEL – The Law Newswire – CBS News reports that a fourth man wanted in the alleged JFK terror plot announced last week has surrendered.
Abdel Nur turned himself in this morning around 11 a.m., according to the official. He said Nur was on his way to a police station in Port du Spain, Trinidad, and may have a court appearance this afternoon.
Nur, 57, is originally from Pakistan but is a citizen of Guyana.
He is the fourth man arrested in the alleged plot, including a former opposition member of Guyana’s parliament and a former airport air cargo employee who was arrested in New York.
U.S. authorities claim the alleged plotters unsuccessfully sought support in Trinidad from Jamaat al Muslimeen, a radical Islamic group that staged a deadly coup attempt in the Caribbean nation in 1990.
In addition to Nur, Trinidadian authorities are holding two suspects: Abdul Kadir, the former Guyanese lawmaker, and Kareem Ibrahim of Trinidad. They are fighting extradition to the United States.
The other suspect named, Russell Defreitas, is former JFK air cargo employee who was arrested in New York. He is a U.S. citizen native to Guyana, a former Dutch and British colony on the northern coast of South America.
