Doctors who volunteer to treat the wounds of terrorists under a terrorist organization's direction can be prosecuted under US terrorism laws, a judge said Tuesday.
Dr. Rafiq Abdus Sabir is accused of agreeing to treat al-Qaida members, but he has claimed it is unconstitutional to prosecute a doctor for providing medical services.
Sabir was arrested in 2005, accused with three others in a plot to assist terrorist organizations from 2003 to 2005. He has pleaded not guilty to conspiring to provide material support or resources to a terrorist organization and has remained jailed since his arrest.
