3 Boston Islamic charity leaders convicted again
Appeals court reinstates conviction of 3 Boston Islamic charity leaders accused of conspiracy
By The Associated Press

BOSTON (AP) ' A federal appeals court has reinstated the conviction of a Libyan man and two associates accused of conspiring to dupe the U.S. into granting tax-exempt status to a defunct Muslim charity by hiding its pro-jihad activities.

The court Thursday reinstated the jury's guilty verdict against Libya's Emadeddin Muntasser (ee-MAH'-de-din mun-TAH'-sehr), Samir Al-Monla and Muhammed Mubayyid. They led the defunct Boston-based Care International Inc.

A jury convicted them in January 2008. But a U.S. District Court judge overturned the tax conspiracy conviction, saying the evidence didn't support the verdict.



The district court will sentence Al-Monla and re-sentence Muntasser and Lebanese national Mubayyid.

Mubayyid's attorney says his client was deported after serving his original sentence. The others' attorneys didn't immediately return calls for comment.
