White Collar Defense and Internal Investigations Partner Stan Twardy is quoted in the June 7 Christian Science Monitor on the arrest of two terror suspects at New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport.
Federal authorities put the cuffs on two US citizens, Mohamed Mahmood Alessa and Carlos Eduardo Almonte, just before they could board a flight to Egypt. On Monday morning, both men were arraigned in federal court in Newark, N.J., and charged with conspiring to murder, kidnap, and maim outside the United States.
"They could have arrested them in New Jersey," says Stan Twardy, a former US Attorney for the District of Connecticut. "But arresting them at the airport shows greater evidence of their intent to go through with their actions."
Mr. Twardy, who now does white-collar criminal defense at Day Pitney LLP, says he would not be surprised if the defendants' cellphones were tapped. "You want to know who they talk to en route," he says. "Both here and overseas. Maybe they are getting moral support from someone."
On September 25, DC-based counsel Steven Cash will be a featured speaker at the National Forum on the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA), an event presented by the American Conference Institute and held in Washington, DC.
