Four M15 agents appeared on the stand in disguise at a Brooklyn federal court early this week to describe their observation of a man accused of taking part in a plot to bomb targets in Denmark, New York City, and England.
Abid Naseer, 28 years of age, is fighting off charges of offering support to terrorists, conspiracy to give support, and conspiracy to creating a destructive weapon related to the plots.
The agents offered testimony on Naseer’s activity in March and April of 2009. They’ve described Naseer’s general movement in England.
All four agents were dressed in professional attire and sported glasses. Three of the four agents had beards.
The first agent who appeared on the stand was young-looking and looked slender. He identified himself with another alias: Officer 1661. He admitted of spying on Naseer for one whole month of 2009 as part of a covert operation called “Operation Pathway.” The operation involved keeping track of Naseer’s movements and whereabouts in Manchester, England.
