Very strange. Homaidan Al-Turki has been transfered to a federal prison. If you recall, I wrote about this Muslim enslaver back in March. He was trying to get a transfer to Saudi Arabia, where raping your maid and keeping her as a slave is sanctioned under Islamic law. But Colorado Department of Corrections chief Tom Clements said no. Clements was subsequently murdered execution style, and there is an ongoing investigation of Al-Turki's possible involvement in the execution.
Homaidan Al-Turki was sentenced to 28 years in prison after being convicted by a Colorado jury for imprisoning his housekeeper and holding her as a sex slave (more here). During his trial, al-Turki argued that he was a victim of anti-Muslim bias. “We are Muslim. We are different. The state has criminalized these basic Muslim behaviors. Attacking traditional Muslim behaviors is a focal point of the prosecution,” al-Turki said during testimony.
Dhimmi Colorado governer Hickenlooper was amenable to the outrageous Islamic supremacist request and came close to approving al-Turki's demand, save for the national uproar that arose when Hickenlooper's dhimmitude came to light. And Colorado Department of Corrections chief Tom Clements was adamantly against it. If al-Turki had been allowed to return to Saudi Arabia, he would have escaped punishment for his crimes.
“Slavery, including sexual slavery, is sanctioned in Islamic law,”explains Robert Spencer . “Thus… what Homaidan al-Turki is accused of doing is not criminal activity in Saudi Arabia.”
“Sending [al-Turki] back [to Saudi Arabia] would be tantamount to freeing him, and to implicitly accepting the legitimacy of Islamic law and its precedence over American law,” Spencer added.
An Atlas reader who was a guard in the Colorado prison knew al-Turki said:
I can also say that I knew Al-Turki, and while I did not know Ebel, I have known several members of the 2-11 Crew, including high ranking members, and including founding members. I worked in the Colorado DOC for almost 20 years as a line officer. I met Al-Turki and I can tell you from experience that his is a piece of crap. He has absolutely no remorse for what he did, and he has stated that repeatedly over the years. I can also tell you that he does have ties to known muslim terrorists. He was having terrorist literature and messages sent into the prison from his bookstore, both to himself and to other inmates. He was spreading radical islamic beliefs among the inmates. Eventually, items sent from his bookstore into the prison were banned. Inmates can no longer order materials from Al-Turki's bookstore. Is it possible that Clements was killed because he refused Al-Turki's request for a transfer to Saudi Arabia? Absolutely. (read the rest here)
Now they have moved him to a federal prison. Why?
"Saudi Prisoner Moved To Federal Prison In Colorado" CBS Denver September 6, 2013 (thanks to Lookmann)
DENVER (AP) — A Saudi man convicted of sexual assaulting his housekeeper and treating her as a virtual slave was moved from a Colorado state prison to a federal prison outside Denver with little explanation Friday.
Homaidan al-Turki had been held at the Limon Correctional Facility and was moved to the Federal Correction Institution Englewood, a minimum security prison.
State and federal prison officials confirmed the move but wouldn’t discuss specifics about why it was done. One of his lawyers, Henry Solano, said a federal prisons caseworker told his team that the state had requested it for unspecified security concerns and wants al-Turki to finish out his sentence at a federal prison.
Solano said the transfer was a total surprise. He said he had a routine meeting with al-Turki in Limon on Thursday and he didn’t say anything about being concerned for his safety.
Alison Morgan, a spokeswoman for the Colorado Department of Corrections, said the transfer was routine but said the department never discusses reasons for moves.
“We transfer inmates utilizing the federal interstate compact for offenders for the business needs of the department and the safe operations of our units,” she said.
Al-Turki’s request to serve out his sentence in Saudi Arabia was denied in March by then prisons’ chief Tom Clements. Clements was shot and killed the following week when he answered his front door. Publicity about whether al-Turki could possibly be involved in Clements’ death led to him being placed in solitary confinement three times over his objections.
Al-Turki sued over his treatment and alleged that state officials had leaked word that the possibility of Clements being killed in retaliation for the denial was “the main working theory” in the investigation.
A former prison inmate, Evan Ebel, is the only suspect named in Clements’ death but authorities haven’t released the motive for the killing yet.
It was unclear whether the Federal Correction Institution, where former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich is being held, was where al-Turki ultimately would be held or was just a stopover on the way to another federal prison.
Morgan said Colorado still retains jurisdiction over al-Turki’s incarceration.
