Nigerian terrrorist, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, who was handed a life sentence for attempting to blow up a U.S. airliner on Christmas Day 2009, has appealed the punishment, which his lawyer Anthony Chambers has referred to as “cruel and unconstitutional”.

The notice of appeal by the “underwear bomber” was dated Thursday and posted on Friday in the electronic court record for federal court in Detroit, the Associated Press reported.

Abdulmutallab had pleaded guilty to a failed terrorist attack, four months ago in October. He had been carrying the explosives in his underwear and had attempted to blow up the Detroit bound plane, which had 289 passengers on board.

While the explosives hadn’t detonated completely, they had caused a brief fire, buringing Abdulmutallab’s groin.

In his speech before court during his sentence hearing, Abdulmutallab had offered no apologies for his dangerous actions, calling it a revenge mission against United States for their ill treatment of muslims.

While his attorney had argued that the mandatory life sentence be reduced as the plot had failed, prosecutors had maintained that the explosion had failed out of sheer luck.

A 52-second FBI video of the mock explosion that showed the impact the explosives on Abdulmutallab would have caused was played out in court yesterday.

The unrepentant “underwear bomber”, watching the video, shouted twice “God is Great!”

U.S. District Judge Nancy Edmunds who presided over the case set aside Chamber’s call for a lesser sentence, adding that Abdulmutallab, who described the day as a “day of victory”, had shown no remorse for his actions.

Abdulmutallab had sat with a passive look on his face as the Edmunds handed down the maximum penalty for the crime committed.

“This was an act of terrorism that cannot be quibbled with,” said US District Judge Nancy Edmunds.

  1. I wonder the kind of heart this young man has! Instead of been remorseful&repentant 2 know if God wil av mercy on him. In as much as i dnt wnt him dead,let him serve a cruel puñishment.may God touch his heart 2 repent.

  2. Who is this stupid lawyer that is even saying life in prison is too harsh…wen capital punishment was supposed to be given to this fool…d lawyer should be sent back to law school…just cos ure paid to defend doesn’t mean u should defend stupidly…

  3. Atymz i get so mesmerized considereing d colossal level of brainwashing dt wz deployed 2dz insignificant fool’z braincells..imagine d unrepentant babarian showing no remorse atal..wel if m asked 2submit a conjecture,il gladly suggest a death sentence by suspendending him thro a hook pierced in2 d flesh covering hz chest..luk at hz head..idiot!

  4. one is surprised that pple are in support of terrorists. can you imagine? is the life of this refract to be compared with 289 lives not destitutes but important personalities. to hail with all of you that calls evil good.
