BOSTON— The jury in the case of three officers of a defunct Muslim charity listened yesterday to wiretaps in U.S. District Court in which two of the defendants spoke to two men who subsequently were convicted with Jose Padilla on terrorism conspiracy charges.
However, when jury members heard Emadeddin Z. Muntasser and Samir Al-Monla, successive presidents of Care International from 1993 through 1998, talk to Kifah Jayoussi and Adham Hassoun, they were not told that Mr. Jayoussi and Mr. Hassoun are awaiting sentencing in federal court in Miami after having been convicted in August with Mr. Padilla. Mr. Jayoussi and Mr. Hassoun and Mr. Padilla were charged with belonging to a North American terrorism support cell that provided money, recruits and supplies to Islamic extremists around the world.
