Bin Laden's Relatives Get Short Prison Sentence

Monday, 02 Apr 2012 07:08 AM

 

The lawyer for Osama bin Laden's family says a Pakistani court has convicted his three widows and two of his daughters on charges of illegally living in Pakistan and sentenced them to 45 days in prison.

Mohammed Amir Khalil says Monday's verdict gives his clients credit for time served.

They have been in detention since last May when U.S. commandos killed bin Laden at the house in the Pakistani town of Abbottabad where he was living with his family.

Khalil said they were formally arrested on March 3, so they will serve another two weeks in prison and then will be deported with their children. He did not say where they would be deported.

Khalil said he does not plan on appealing the decision.
