Alouni appeared before the Spanish national court for the unique charge of meeting Ben laden in 2001, while he was Al jazeera’s correspondent in Afghanistan.
Alouni’s wife, Fatima Zahra, reaffirmed that her husband is innocent from all the fabricated charges against him.
“We will do everything we can to prove his innocence in the end,” she said
She also explained that the next step to be taken will be “to demand to release Alouni on bail, considering his health conditions.”
Al jazeera expressed its wish that the judgment would be fair and based on the investigation data, which freed Alouni from all charges except meeting Ben laden.
