Lawyers for three out-of-state men known as the “NATO 3″ – who have been accused of plotting to firebomb political targets during the NATO Summit last spring – have asked a Cook County judge to dismiss the terrorism charges against them.
Three anti-NATO protesters have pleaded not guilty to charges they were planning to use Molotov cocktails to attack Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s home, President Barack Obama’s campaign headquarters, and several police stations.
Defense attorneys have released an indictment handed up by a Cook County grand jury, against three out-of-town men behind held on terrorism-related charges for their alleged activities before the NATO summit.
Three out-of-state men were indicted in court Tuesday morning, on accusations that they plotted to attack President Barack Obama’s campaign headquarters and Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s house during the NATO Summit, but prosecutors declined to share copies of the indictment with defense attorneys.
One of the accused “NATO 3” wants to resolve terrorism charges in Cook County before returning to Florida to deal with a pending case there.
Another round of court appearances is coming up Wednesday for several people arrested for alleged violent plots in the days leading up to the NATO Summit.
Defense attorneys for the three men accused of making firebombs to attack police and other high-profile targets during the NATO Summit claimed police and prosecutors fabricated the charges to justify the intense security measures put in place for the summit.
Three anti-NATO protesters stand charged of plotting to target police stations with Molotov cocktails. But who are they?
