ACLU Demanding That Feds Turn Over OC Mosque Spying Records
The case that erupted with ex-con man Craig Monteilh's confession that he's been spying on OC mosques for the FBI will hit local federal courts this afternoon, when the ACLU makes arguments asking for the release of all the
information attached to the FBI's infiltration of various local mosques. ACLU missive below:
SANTA ANA, Calif. - In the wake of news that an FBI informant infiltrated several Orange County mosques, the ACLU of Southern California will demand in federal district court Monday that the bureau release full information about its surveillance of the lawful activities of Muslims in Southern California. For nearly three years, the bureau has refused to release this information.
ACLU attorneys will talk to reporters after the hearing in front of the Santa Ana federal courthouse at approximately 2:30 p.m. See our coverage of the alleged spying here.
