Prosecutor Jim Jacks brought up a few more security documents that were not found in the HLF offices on Wednesday, Oct. 15, 2008 as he continued direct examining FBI agent Robert Miranda a fourth day. The supposed security documents were found in homes of individuals who are not defendants in the HLF case. Jacks displayed a document showing that the HLF got a counter-surveillance sweep at their Richardson office. The next attempt of the Jacks-Miranda duo was to discredit defendant Shukri Abu-Baker by showing the jury a visa application to Saudi Arabia that Abu-Baker applied for as an employee of Infocom, a web-hosting company owned by defendant Ghassan Elashi and his brothers. Miranda reinforced that Abu-Baker was never an employee of Infocom.
