Terror Lawyers Allowed Access

WASHINGTON (AP) - The Obama administration has loosened a
requirement that delayed lawyers from representing the father of
alleged terrorist Anwar al-Awlaki, an American citizen and radical
Muslim cleric who has been placed on a CIA list targeting him for
death or capture.

Under a regulatory change that went in effect Dec. 7, attorneys
working for free no longer have to obtain a license from the
Treasury Department's Office of Foreign Assets Control before
representing clients who are placed on a terrorist list the office
maintains.

The licensing requirement is designed to freeze terrorist assets
and it still applies to attorneys who want to get paid out of
frozen funds.
