Aafia Siddiqui allowed to end US appeal


A US court has allowed Dr Aafia Siddiqui to withdraw what could be the last appeal of her conviction on charges of attempted murder.

US District Judge Richard Berman in Manhattan said that Siddiqui, who is serving an 86-year sentence in a prison medical centre in Texas, had ‘clearly and unequivocally’ stated her intent to end the appeal.

The judge ordered the case closed and said that, even if the appeal had continued, he likely would have ruled against her. Siddiqui was represented at trial by an able team of five lawyers, Berman wrote. He declined to hold a hearing to question her further. In May, a new lawyer filed the appeal on Siddiqui’s behalf, but in July Siddiqui wrote a letter to Berman saying she had no faith in the US legal system and refused to participate in it.

A jury convicted Siddiqui in 2010 of attempting to shoot and kill a group of FBI agents, US soldiers and interpreters who were about to interrogate her in Ghazni, Afghanistan, for alleged links to al Qaeda.


  1. Terrorist scum who left her husband and children to go fight with fanatics…she was found guilty by a jury and she is guilty…

  2. Sidiqu Aafia is GUILTY of Counts that did not work or could change. If something happens then Action and reaction or of results are oppopsite and equal in funtions understandable to work and of them the same as functions of result. So aActionand Reaction are opposite and Equal and Actions are the same or functions of Result or Opposite function or by Law of Inertia Actions go and give no reaction as such and found working in until other things or state achirved of another. So What she does does not work any action out found guilty or action found guilty or found guity. She has no capacity to or capable of doing to guilt. It's more or trick result to Incapable.
    So are all found from or on her; because they are all things that can do good. So what is count or the count for guil.t. Write or describe guiltiness of things done of or of her actions or things
