Infamous “underwear bomber” sues feds over treatment at Colorado Supermax – The Denver Post

He's now filed a lawsuit with a Colorado federal court in which he claims his constitutional rights have been violated.

Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, 30, has been known as the "Underwear Bomber" since Christmas Day 2009 when he attempted to blow up a plane headed from Amsterdam to Detroit with an explosive device sewed to his underwear.

He is being held at the United States Penitentiary-Administrative Maximum Facility in Florence, Colorado, USA.

The suit argues that Abdulmutallab has "behaved well" in the last five years, but continues to be held under the strictest conditions of the USA penal system - solitary confinement with minimum contact. The lawsuit said he went on a hunger strike to protest bad treatment, but authorities force-fed him.

Besides, he accuses the Justice Department of restricting his communication, including not allowing him to talk to his nieces and nephews since his solitary confinement was based on a special administrative measures imposed on national security grounds.

It also said that when he is praying alone, prison wardens allow white supremacist inmates to yell and scream at him - while guards have forced him to look at pornographic pictures while he is praying.

'The restrictions imposed on our client are excessive and unnecessary, and therefore we seek the intervention of the federal court'.

Abdulmutallab, who is serving four consecutive life sentences plus 50 years, pleaded guilty in 2012 to trying to blow up an airplane using a bomb hidden in his underwear.
