Philippines: Extradite doctor linked to NYC attack


In this light, Aguirre admitted it was possible that Salic's defense lawyers could oppose their client's extradition to the USA because he has pending criminal charges before the Philippine courts.

Salic is also linked to local terror group Maute, who underwent preliminary investigation in DOJ for kidnapping and murder charges last August for his alleged involvement in kidnappings and beheadings blamed on Islamic State (IS) followers.

Salic was also reported to have wired US$426.30 to a man named Jasanizam Rosni in Johor on June 24, 2016, four days before the Movida grenade blast that left eight injured.

U.S. prosecutors have said that the attacks were planned for Ramadan past year.

According to a report based on court filings, the Federal Bureau of Investigation concluded that Salic had provided the funding for the Movida pub bombing, the first IS-linked attack in Malaysia, where eight people were injured.

Manila has embarked on Sunday the extradition procedure in the United States of a Filipino suspected of having played a role in a project of attacks by jihadists against targets in NY city.

A complaint signed by the agent quoted messages sent by Salic to others involved in the plot in which he described terror laws in the Philippines as "not strict" in comparison to countries such as Australia and the UK. But no worry here in Philippines. "Only in west", he added, according to the statement.

"The suspect (Salic) who said that the Philippines is a breeding ground for terrorists was arrested early this year".

TOP officials of the police and military on Monday said terror groups are drawn to the Philippines as the country enjoys too much "democratic space".
