Suaad Hagi Mohamud's long-awaited DNA test has now been done. For good measure, Canadian consular officials took her fingerprints for a second time (just in case she'd sent a ringer a few days ago, no doubt), weighed her, measured her and photographed her.
The government's case, thin to begin with, is crumbling by the minute. Apparently the theory floating around Justice Department circles is that she lent her passport to a lookalike, maybe a sister (although all of her sisters live in Europe). The lookalike, whoever she is, was taken into custody and charged.
The real Suaad Hagi Mohamud is supposedly nowhere to be found, even though she apparently talks regularly with her 12-year-old son. But maybe he's part of the conspiracy to exchange Mohamuds.
Hence all this anthropometry. And when the DNA matches, what's the next excuse--that the son and ex-husband are impostors, too?
