Recently the courts have sentenced bin Laden’s family to 45 days in prison for living illegally in Pakistan. This lean sentence has led many to feel robbed and possibly unsafe.
“A Pakistani court has sentenced three of Usama bin Laden’s widows and two of his older daughters to 45 days in prison for illegal entry and staying in Pakistan.
Each of bin Laden’s relatives also received a $110 fine. They were sentenced at a hearing in the Islamabad safe house where the family members are currently staying.
The U.S. has not found any evidence indicating senior Pakistani officials knew bin Laden’s whereabouts.
However, details released recently from the interrogation of his 30-year-old Yemeni wife, Amal Ahmed Abdel-Fatah al-Sada, raised fresh questions about how he lived in the country so long undetected.
Bin Laden lived in five safe houses over the course of nine years while on the run in Pakistan and fathered four children — two of them born in government hospitals, according to al-Sada’s interrogation report, which was received by The Associated Press.”
What does this really mean for the safety of U.S. citizens? Does this present any clear and present danger? are bin Laden’s family a possible danger or threat?
