Al Faisal Returns to Court Today

Another bail application will be made for controversial Jamaican-born Muslim Cleric, Sheikh Abdullah Al Faisal today.

Al Faisal will be appearing this morning in the Kingston and St. Andrew parish court in Half Way Tree.

His attorney, Bianca Samuels last month secured an early date in court to make the bail application.

Al Faisal wasn’t due to appear in court again until October 27.

He was arrested on an extradition warrant.

The controversial cleric, who’s also known as Trevor Williams Forrest is wanted by law enforcement in the United States.

The charges laid against him are terrorism related.

According to the New York Daily News, Al Faisal was arrested after a sting operation over several months carried out by an undercover New York Police Department officer.

The officer reportedly communicated with Al Faisal by e-mail, text and video chat.

According to the Manhattan district attorney, Al Faisal offered to help the officer travel to the Middle East and join fighters with the Islamic State group, also known as ISIS.
