Protest :

Wednesday, September 3, 2008
9:30am – 11:00am

Location:
Magistrates Court, 5th Floor,
United States District Court for the Southern District of New York
500 Pearl Street
Manhattan, NY

Description
The hearing is on 3rd September is at the United States District Court (U.S.D.C.) for the Southern District of New York (S.D.N.Y), located at 500 Pearl Street, Manhattan. It will be held in the Magistrates Court, 5th floor.

The hearing will start at 10am.

Although it is called preliminary examination, Aafia will likely be indicted before then and arraigned on her indictment on that day. Currently, the hearing is scheduled for magistrate’s court on the 5th floor. Magistrate’s court is small, but they will likely move the hearing to a larger courtroom if a large number of people attend as they did at a previous hearing. If she is indicted, a judge will be assigned and it will likely be moved to that judge’s courtroom. The judge may also change the time (and date) of the hearing. Any further changes will be posted as soon as they are known but may be as late as the day before the hearing.
