A Dutch tv show in which a fake jury found Osama bin Laden not guilty of involvement in the Sept. 11 terror attacks in the US has angered New York's former mayor and other officials, Fox tv news reports.
The show, Devil's Advocate, sends a 'disturbing' message to the world and fuels conspiracy theories, former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani and other former US prosecutors were quoted as saying.
The jury of three men and two women ruled last Wednesday that there was no proof bin Laden masterminded the 9/11 attacks or that he remains the head of Al Qaeda.
During the show, Dutch celebrity lawyer Gerard Spong argued that Bin Laden's connection to 9/11 was the product of 'hearsay' and 'Western propaganda' and cast doubt on the authenticity of videos and statements.
