Documents Allege NJ Man Had Deeper Terrorist Ties

A man who sold fake identification to two of the Sept. 11 hijackers allegedly had broader ties to terrorism than were previously known, according to previously secret documents unsealed on Tuesday. The court transcripts included allegations that Mohammed El-Atriss, 46, of Union Township, New Jersey, had been part owner of a Jersey City business with ties to the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. Judge Marilyn Clark of Passaic County Superior Court unsealed the documents at the request of six news organizations. El-Atriss was sentenced in March to five years’ probation and fined $15,000 for selling phony documents. Miles Feinstein, El-Atriss’ lawyer, insisted his client was not associated with any terrorists. “If anybody thought he knowingly aided or abetted or conspired with the terrorists, he’d either be in a military prison, or facing military justice,” Feinstein said in a telephone interview.
