Yassin Aref’s Daughter on Experiencing His Arrest

Alaa Muhiddin is the daughter of Yassin Aref, one of the two men who were subjects of the FBI sting in Albany. She spoke with Sina Basila Hickey about being a young girl when her father was accused of being a terrorist, the trauma her family endured, and the relief of moving past this experience.

A documentary about this case will be showing at the Sanctuary on June 17th. More info: www.mediasanctuary.org/event/witness-a-documentary/
