SARGODHA (AFP/Reuters) Police on Tuesday presented a list of charges against five American men suspected of plotting attacks and trying to contact Al-Qaeda-linked militants, their lawyer said. The court received the challan (charge sheet) which carries charges of criminal conspiracy, having the intention to go to Pakistans neighbouring countries to topple the government and involvement in fund raising for terrorist acts, defence lawyer Hassan Dastagir told Reuters. The court is expected to formally charge the five at the next hearing on March 10, he said. The five US citizens were arrested and detained in Sargodha in December and have yet to be charged, despite appearing in an anti-terrorism court at successive remand hearings. They have repeatedly made claims of torture and mistreatment while in custody. Where is justice? they shouted while being driven away from the court in a secure prison van after Tuesdays hearing. Asked what the charges were, defence lawyer Hassan said he would study the hefty document presented by the police before commenting. We will now study the charges - the court will also study the charges and the case will be heard further if the court finds a reason for trial. Prosecutors and police have said they want the five men charged with plotting militant attacks in Pakistan and attempting to commit an act of terror against countries that are at peace with Pakistan. Although those countries have not been named, officials have said the young men planned to travel to neighbouring Afghanistan and join up with Taliban-led militants fighting US and NATO troops. The suspects, however, deny any links to militant groups and insist that they wanted to travel to Afghanistan for charity work. Aged between 18 and 25, they face life imprisonment if put on trial and found guilty. The Lahore High Court has barred their deportation to the United States, where they all lived before travelling to Pakistan last year. Last month, the court denied them bail. Investigators have said that the men planned to travel from Sargodha to South Waziristan.
