NEW YORK â€” An imam who pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI during the investigation into a suicide bomb plot against New York City subway stations has been deported.
- In this Sept. 24, 2009 file photo, Imam Ahmad Wais Afzali, accompanied by his wife Fatima speaks to reporters before entering their home in Fresh Meadows section of the Queens borough of New York, following his release from jail on terrorism charges. Two immigration agents escorted Afazi and his wife to a Saudi Arabian Airlines flight on Monday, July 5, 2010 as they were deported for lying to FBI Agents when questioned about a plot to attack New York City subways in 2009.
The lawyer for Ahmad Afzali (AKH’-mahd ahf-ZAH’-lee) says Afzali and his wife left on a Saudi Arabian Airlines flight to Jeddah on Monday afternoon. Two immigration agents accompanied him to the plane to ensure he got on. Afzali’s lawyer says some of Afzali’s last words on U.S. ground were: ‘God bless America.’
Afzali’s wife Fatima got a position teaching English in Saudi Arabia. Afzali isn’t quite sure what he’s going to do there. The Afghanistan-born imam has lived most of his life in Queens.
He was sentenced April 15 to time served and deportation. Najibullah Zazi pleaded guilty in plot disrupted by federal and NYPD officials.
