lång väntan och advokaternas försök att förhala
det hela ÅTALADES ÄNTLIGEN IGÅR HAMAS
AL AQSA SPANNMÅLSSTIFTELSE på
Nobelvägen 79 i Malmö.
åtalades också på torsdagen
Efter två års utredningsarbete anser sig
åklagare nu ha bevis för att Malmöstiftelsen
al-Aqsa Spannmål finansierade terrorism i
Israel. Avlyssnade samtal och förhör med
en ledare för en annan terrorstämplad
organisation hör till den åberopade bevisningen.
I fem år slussades miljonbelopp från stiftelsen
al-Aqsa Spannmål i Sverige till olika palestinska
kommittéer i Gaza och på Västbanken.
Men pengarna gick inte till behövande barn
utan hamnade i fickorna på Hamas terrorister,
menar vice chefsåklagare Agneta Hilding
Al Aqsa Foundation (AAF) is a critical part of the HAMAS terrorist support infrastructure. Through its headquarters in Germany and branch offices in the Netherlands, Denmark, Belgium, Sweden, Pakistan, South Africa, Yemen and elsewhere, AAF funnels money collected for charitable purposes to HAMAS terrorists. Like other HAMAS-affiliated charities, AAF uses humanitarian relief as cover to provide support to the HAMAS terrorist organization.
Mahmoud Amr, the Director of AAF in Germany, is an active figure in HAMAS. AAF offices are included in lists of organizations that contributed to the HAMAS-affiliated Charity Coalition in 2001 and 2002. Pursuant to a July 31, 2002 administrative order, German authorities closed AAF in Germany for supporting HAMAS. In April 2003, Dutch authorities blocked AAF assets in The Netherlands based on information that funds were provided to organizations supporting terrorism in the Middle East. Criminal charges against some AAF officials were also filed.
On January 1, 2003, the Danish government charged three AAF officials in Denmark for supporting terrorism. Also, the head of the Yemeni branch of AAF, Shaykh Muhammad Ali Hassan Al-Muayad, was arrested for providing support to terrorist organizations, including Al-Qaida and HAMAS, in January 2003 by German authorities.
In Scandinavia, the Oslo, Norway-based Islamic League used the AAF in Sweden to channel funds from some members of the Islamic community in Oslo, Norway to HAMAS. Al-Muayad has also allegedly provided money, arms, recruits and communication equipment for Al-Qaida. At least until Al-Muayad's arrest, Ali Muqbil, the General Manager of AAF in Yemen and a HAMAS official, transferred funds on Al-Muayad’s orders to HAMAS, PIJ or other Palestinian organizations assisting "Palestinian fighters." The disbursements were recorded as contributions for charitable projects. Also, several officials and active supporters of al Qaida and Asbat Al-Ansar (designated under EO 13224 as a specially designated global terrorist) are leaders of some branches of the AAF.
