“An accessory-after-the-fact is someone who assists 1) someone who has committed a crime, 2) after the person has committed the crime, 3) with knowledge that the person committed the crime, and 4) with the intent to help the person avoid arrest or punishment. An accessory after the fact may be held liable for, among other things, obstruction of justice…”
“Whoever, knowing that an offense against the United States has been committed, receives, relieves, comforts or assists the offender in order to hinder or prevent his apprehension, trial or punishment, is an accessory after the fact… An accessory after the fact is defined as follows: Access after the fact is a person who with knowledge of the other person[‘s] guilt gives assistance to a felon in an effort to hinder the felon[‘s] detection, arrest, trial or punishment…” – Morgan v. Lafler, 2009 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 93580 (E.D. Mich. Oct. 7, 2009)
Nation of Islam (NOI) leader Minister Louis Farrakhan has maintained a decades-long association with (and had in his organisation’s employ) a man – Abdul Karriem Muhammad aka Linward X Cathcart – of whose role in the Malcolm X assassination (which occurred at New York’s Audubon Ballroom on 21st February 1965) Mr Farrakhan has undoubtedly been fully aware.
And that by providing Mr Cathcart with safe harbour and ongoing employment in the NOI (while feigning ignorance of Mr Cathcart’s role in Malcolm’s murder) Mr Farrakhan stands guilty of obstructing justice in a manner that indicts the NOI leader of being, at a minimum, an ACCESSORY-AFTER-THE-FACT in the crime.
