We also have an active international criminal practice, representing our clients and consulting with lawyers on cases in foreign courts and international tribunals. Nancy Hollander has maintained an active international criminal practice over two decades and is currently an Associate Tenant with Doughty Street Chambers in London.
Nancy Hollander has consulted with lawyers in Ireland in a high-profile terrorism case; in cases involving criminal charges in both the US and foreign jurisdictions, and in foreign cases seeking evidence or witnesses in the US. She also represents two inmates in Guantanamo Bay Naval Prison in securing the justice that they need. Both prisoners were tortured severely and imprisoned for more than 13 years. Abd Rahim Al-Nashiri, one of the prisoners, is facing the death sentence. Our team is currently representing him via the American Civil Liberties Union’s John Adams Project. Through FBD’s representation, we won two cases in the European Court of Human Rights and secured 200,000 Euros for Mr. Al-Nashiri, which went to his family. We continue to represent him in other international tribunals.
FBD Law has represented Mohamedou Ould Slahi, the other inmate, pro bono (free of charge) for many years. Nancy Hollander represented him in his petition for a writ of habeas corpus and won the case. Ultimately, in October 2016, our team was able to successfully secure his release to Mauritania, his home country. Additionally, Nancy Hollander fought hard for six years to have his book manuscript cleared for publication. Guantanamo Diary later went on to become a national bestseller and will soon be a major feature film, titled The Mauritanian.
