Specialist Appointed to Protect Classified Information in Idaho Terror Case

AP/Idaho State Police

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — A federal court judge in Idaho has appointed a security specialist in the case of an Uzbek national accused of terrorism-related crimes in Idaho and Utah, to vet potentially classified information in the evidence.

In his order released late Tuesday, U.S. District Judge Edward Lodge appointed Winfield S. “Scooter” Slade as a classified information security officer in the case against Fazliddin Kurbanov. Kurbanov, a 30-year-old refugee from central Asia, has pleaded not guilty in federal court in Boise to charges including helping teach people to build bombs to target public transportation.

Lodge wrote in Tuesday’s order he’s been made aware of the potential existence of classified information in Kurbanov’s case. In appointing Slade, Lodge cited a federal law requiring courts to have procedures in place for handling such sensitive material.
