“Re: United States v. Ali Sadr
Hashemi Nejadin, 18 Cr. 224
(AJN)  Expensive Choose Nathan:
The Authorities respectfully
submits the enclosed
utility for an order of
nolle prosequi of the
Indictments filed on this case
in opposition to Ali Sadr Hashemi
Nejadin (“Sadr”) and Bahram
Karimi. The Court docket is acquainted
with disclosure-related points
that arose through the March
2020 trial in addition to in pre-
and post-trial movement
observe, together with with
respect to pretrial
suppression litigation. In
mild of these points; our
recognition that Sadr would
have pursued totally different
investigative, litigation, and
trial methods had the
disclosures been made; the
want for continued litigation
about suppression points and
the potential for suppression

on June 7, nonetheless with none
press launch by the SDNY
Press Workplace about this
growth, this from Ali

legal professionals: “Ali Sadr welcomes
the federal government’s determination to
drop this misguided
prosecution and wholeheartedly
agrees that it’s within the
curiosity of justice for the
Court docket to dismiss this case.
See Dkt. 348. Nevertheless, a nolle
prosequi—a common-law motion
outmoded by the Federal
Guidelines of Felony Process—is
not the correct mechanism to do
so. Amongst different causes,
permitting the federal government to
proceed on this method may
be considered as allowing the
unlawfully obtained responsible
verdict to face, which might
conceivably have adversarial
immigration penalties for
Sadr along with
perpetuating the reputational
hurt he has already suffered.
The federal government’s nolle
prosequi submission, stating
it unilaterally won’t
proceed additional, additionally may
not be deemed a dismissal of
the case with prejudice. The
authorities has confirmed, in a
June 5, 2020 cellphone name and a
June 6, 2020 trade of
emails, that it meant to
dismiss the case with
prejudice. Accordingly, Sadr
is submitting a proposed order
confirming that the dismissal
is with prejudice, and making
specific that the decision is
vacated and is null and void.”

Again in March:
Choose Nathan: “The jury has
reached a verdict…. The

keep on till he hears from me
additional.” Jury getting into! Choose

Not responsible. Now polling
