Among the many web site registration forms and other minutiae presented as evidence in court on Thursday to tie Sami Al-Hussayen to various web sites, there were four documents he signed, giving various titles showing he had responsible positions.
One was a contract, in Arabic, in which Al-Hussayen signed “on behalf of Islamway.” Another was a web hosting agreement he signed as “technical manager,” apparently for the site Alhawali2.org. On a certificate to set up credit card payments over the Internet for the almawred.com site of the Dar Al Asr electronic publishing company, he signed as “president and IT manager.” On a similar certificate for the alzad.com site, also affiliated with Dar Al Asr, Al-Hussayen signed as “general manager.”
The upshot of those and dozens of other prosecution exhibits introduced Thursday: Al-Hussayen registered lots of web sites and worked on lots of server problems. The defense hasn’t objected to any of that.
