Legal maneuvering continues in the federal case against a Brookline man and a Shrewsbury man who have been accused of funneling money to Islamic terrorists through an alleged charity.
Emadeddin Z. Muntasser of Brookline and Muhamed Mubayyid, 41, of Shrewsbury, were indicted in May 2005 on charges of running Care International Inc., a Boston-based organization the government claims supported terrorism here and abroad, the Telegram & Gazette of Worcester reports today.
The defendants, who are out on bond awaiting trial, are now claiming the charges aren't clear. Prosecutors say the defendants are simply trying to get a "preview" of the case against them.
