Tarek Mehanna Moved to New Federal Holding Facility, Audio of Sentencing Statement Released
The following statement was released today by the Tarek Mehanna Support Committee.

1) Early this morning an anonymously leaked audio recording of Tarek giving his statement at the sentencing hearing was made public and is now being circulated!

2) *Tarek has been transferred again. *Now he is in Manhattan at the MCC New York. We have no idea when he will be moved again. Chances are he will be placed in a federal prison, rather than these detention centers, very soon. Please pray for him and his family. Will keep you all posted.

Expect mail sent earlier this week (to the MDC Brooklyn) to be returned. If you would like to send him mail at his current location, please do, but expect that he could be moved at any moment.

Tarek Mehanna
ID # 05315748
MCC NEW YORK
