WASHINGTON, Dec. 13 (UPI) -- The United States has deported a Saudi man who was director of a Muslim charity after his conviction for conspiring to commit immigration fraud.
Abdullah Alnoshan of Falls Church, Va., was returned to Saudi Arabia during the weekend after he pleaded guilty to one count of immigration fraud last month.
Alnoshan, 44, had been working as director of the Virginia office of the Muslim World League, one of the largest non-governmental organizations in the world, the Washington Times said Tuesday.
He was arrested in July after a raid by immigration and FBI agents on his offices in an investigation into the group's purported terrorist ties. A criminal complaint charged Alnoshan with conspiring to commit immigration fraud by using fake employment documents to enter, exit and live in the United States.
The Muslim World League has denied any wrongdoing, and has not been charged.
