[JURIST] A Jordanian appeals court has overturned the conviction of a Jordanian man for financing al Qaeda-linked terrorist Abu-Musab al-Zarqawi [BBC profile] in an opinion obtained by the Associated Press Tuesday. According to the Court of Cassation [Jordian Judicial Branch backgrounder], the original decision of the military State Security Court convicting Bilal Mansur al-Hiyari "fell short of adequate justifications and causes." A US Treasury Department report [press release] earlier this year said al-Hiyari became acquainted with al-Zarqawi in Afghanistan in 1989, then traveled to Iraq in 2003 to deliver funds to al-Zarqawi's insurgent network. Al-Hiyari is still designated by the US as a terror financier. AP has more.
