[JURIST] Australian Federal Police Commissioner Mick Keelty [official profile] Wednesday indicated that the Australian Federal Police (AFP) investigation of Dr. Mohammad Haneef [JURIST news archive] was "far from complete," adding that the AFP may still submit a new brief of evidence against Haneef to prosecutors. Keelty's comments followed the Tuesday release of "secret information" [press release; Solicitor-General's opinion, PDF] by Immigration and Citizenship Minister Kevin Andrews [official website], who said the AFP still considers Haneef a suspect in the attempted UK car bomb attacks [JURIST report] in June. The newly released information provided few additional insights to Andrews' much criticized decision to revoke Haneef's work visa and place him under "immigration detention" [JURIST report], but instead reiterated that Haneef left a subscriber identity module (SIM) [Wikipedia backgrounder] with his second cousin, who is one of the alleged bombers.
Haneef, who has not been implicated by UK authorities in the attacks, was detained as a terrorist suspect for 25 days for allegedly providing reckless material support [JURIST report]. Last Friday, prosecutors dropped the terror charge [JURIST report] against Haneef due to insufficient evidence. Haneef has since traveled to Bangalore, India to rejoin his wife and newborn child after the Australian government lifted Haneef's travel ban [JURIST report]. Australian Prime Minister John Howard has refused to apologize [JURIST report] to Haneef, who is currently appealing the revocation of his work visa at the Federal Court of Australia [official website]. Haneef's next hearing is scheduled for August 8. PTI has more.
