A Moroccan national, convicted of helping three of the suicide pilots in the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on the United States, is expected to be released in October and deported to Morocco, report German online newspaper Morngen Post.

The inmate identified as Mounir al-Motassadeq was convicted in 2007 of «membership in a terrorist organization and accessory to murder for aiding the three hijackers who lived in Hamburg», says the same source.

According to German newspaper Bild, al-Motassadeq should be freed a few weeks before his term formally ends to allow his extradition to Morocco. For the moment, the documents needed for his repatriation have not been provided by the Kingdom.

For the record, Morocco and Germany had signed an agreement on the repatriation of Moroccan nationals involved in terrorism, organized crime and illegal immigration.
