Denmark May Withhold Info on David Coleman Headley Due to U.S. Death Penalty
Denmark has information on David Coleman Headley, aka Daood Gilani, the American born man with dual Pakistani-U.S. citizenship. accused in Chicago of plotting both the Mumbai attacks in 2008 and the planned attack on a Danish newspaper.
Denmark won't provide information to a country that is seeking to execute the defendant. The charges against Headley include death-penalty eligible offenses, although the U.S. has not filed a notice of its intent to seek the death penalty. [More...]
Since Headley is cooperating with the U.S., it's unlikely the U.S. will seek the death penalty against him.
They ought to announce that now, so that they can get whatever evidence Denmark has to offer.
