Military Commissions Media Invitation Announced for United States v. Encep Nurjaman Pre-Trial Hearing

The Department of Defense invites media to cover pre-trial proceedings September 9-13 for Encep Nurjaman, who has been charged in connection with his alleged role in the 2002 and 2003 bombings in Indonesia.

The proceedings will occur at the Expeditionary Legal Complex located in Naval Station Guantanamo Bay (NSGB) Cuba and will be transmitted to closed circuit television (CCTV) sites in the U.S.
