“PTech Officials Indicted for Allegedly Concealing Terror Financier’s Assets
July 16, 2009
SNIPPET: “M. Yaqub Mirza was a Ptech board member who also was a longtime officer at the Herndon, Va.-based SAAR Foundation. Federal investigators have long believed that SAAR officials were significant members of the Muslim Brotherhood in the United States. Dozens of homes and offices related to the SAAR Foundation were raided in March 2002 by federal agents investigating terror financing. Information from that raid was used in the Ziade investigation.
One SAAR subsidiary, Sterling Management Group, held a small ownership stake in Ptech, which included a Virginia-based subsidiary called the Sterling Ptech Fund, LLC.
Soliman Biheiri, a Ptech co-founder, was convicted in 2004 for illegally concealing his extensive business and social relationship with Mousa Abu Marzook, a designated terrorist and leader of Hamas.
Qadi, meanwhile, has not been charged with any crimes and denies the allegations that he helped finance Al Qaeda. Foreign governments have reached conflicting conclusions about him. He remains designated as a global terrorist by the U.S. Turkey has moved to freeze his assets, too. Swiss prosecutors, however, closed their investigation into Qadi in 2007 with no charges filed.”
