This is Mansour Arbabsiar, Iranian-American who was arrested at New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport on September 29, 2011. He was arrested on charges of planning to assassinate Saudi Ambassador Adel al-Jubeir in a bomb attack at a restaurant in Washington. He signed a plea bargain offered to him by Preet Bharara, US Attorney for the Southern District of New York. Mansour Arbabsiar was represented by Sabrina Shroff, a federal public defender, appointed by the court. Arbabsiar’s family says that the plea bargain was signed under duress. They add that Shroff misguided them about the terms of the plea agreement.
