STATEMENT OF U.S. ATTORNEY GEOFFREY S. BERMAN ON THE CONVICTION OF AKAYED ULLAH FOR DETONATION OF A BOMB IN NEW YORK CITY


U.S. Attorney Geoffrey S. Berman said: “Late last year, Akayed Ullah detonated a bomb during the bustle of morning rush hour under the Port Authority Bus Terminal. Ullah’s sinister purpose was to harm and terrorize as many innocent people in his path as possible, by using deadly violence to make a political statement. Ullah’s conviction by a unanimous jury of New Yorkers falls on an Election Day, which fittingly underscores the core principles of American democracy and spirit: Americans engage in the political process through votes, not violence. Today, Ullah stands convicted, he faces a potential life sentence, and his purpose failed.  New York City remains a shining symbol of freedom and hope.”
