Palestinian Liberation Organization - Collection Finding Aid



This collection consists of records concerning requests for the prison release or deportation of Khalid Al-Jawary, also known as Khaled El-Jassem. Al-Jawary, a member of the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO), was arrested in Italy in 1991 and then extradited to the United States. He was sentenced to 30 years imprisonment for three failed bombing attempts in New York City in 1973. The records consist mainly of letters, news articles, and court transcripts. Letters include correspondence from Al-Jawary to the National Security Advisor and Department of Justice Officials. There are also letters from Palestinian officials requesting Al-Jawary’s release or deportation. News articles and excerpts covering Al-Jawary’s trial were enclosures to Al-Jawary’s letters which were intended to support his argument for release from prison.
