US v. Ayesh, 11-4266

Defendant's convictions for theft of public money and other related crimes in connection with his employment at the U.S. Department of State as a shipping and customs supervisor at the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad are affirmed where: 1) despite the fact that defendant is a foreign national and all of the acts occurred in Jordan and Iraq, the district court properly exercised extraterritorial jurisdiction over him; 2) district court did not err in denying defendant's motion to suppress his post-arrest statements; and 3) sufficient evidence was presented to the jury as to each element of the charged section 641 offenses to sustain the verdict.
