A German man who says the CIA illegally whisked him to a secret prison in Afghanistan has been jailed for hitting and threatening a prison officer in an unrelated case in Germany.
After he returned to Germany, El-Masri was sentenced to prison for assaulting the mayor of his hometown.
In the latest case, centering on an incident in July, a court in Kempten sentenced him Wednesday to seven months in prison for slander, bodily harm and making threats, news agency dpa reported.
