Headley's plea deal requires him to testify via video in foreign trials

Thu, Nov 19, 2015, 04:14 PM
Chicago, Nov 19: The attorney here for David Coleman Headley, a key plotter of the 2008 Mumbai terror attacks, has confirmed that he is aware of an Indian court’s request for a video testimony by his client.

Citing attorney-client privilege, John Theis avoided giving any details other than saying that he is aware of the request for videoconferencing by the Terrorist and Disruptive Activities Act (TADA) court.

Asked by IANS if Headley will testify via video, Theis pointed to the conditions in his plea agreement with the US government that led to the death penalty and extradition to India being taken off the list of possible consequences for his guilty plea on all counts.

A session court in Mumbai on Wednesday named Headley an accused in the Mumbai terror trial and directed that he testify before via videoconferencing on December 10.

If the language of the agreement is any guide, it is possible that Headley will testify via video.
