The case of the missing indictment for the three NATO protesters charged with terrorism has been solved by the group’s lawyers, who discovered the documents at the Cook County Court clerk’s office and released them Wednesday.

Lawyers of the NATO 3 were initially denied access to the charges, which include material support for terrorism, possession of an incendiary device, conspiracy to commit terrorism, solicitation to commit arson, attempted arson and two counts of unlawful use of a weapon. The newly released documents show each activist with 11 felony charges each, more than was originally assumed.

“The fact that the indictment charges the defendants with 11 serious felonies, including ‘terrorism’ and two separate ‘conspiracy’ charges for the alleged possession of 4 makeshift incendiary devices shows that the State is intent on continuing its strategy to sensationalize this case,” said attorney Michael Deutsch with the People’s Law Office and the National Lawyers Guild (NLG), in a press release. “The prosecutor controls the grand jury and is able to obtain a rubber-stamped indictment for any charges it desires.”
