Summary of Case:

"Imad Eddin Barakat Yarkas, Driss Chebli, Sadik Merizak, and Abdelaziz Benyaich were co-defendants wrongly convicted in September 2005 of collaborating or belonging to a terrorist group (al Qaeda). Spain's High Court quashed his conviction in May 2006. The prosecution didn't oppose the Court's action, agreeing that there was insufficient proof of Benyaich's guilt."
