TAXMAN KEPT QUIET WHILE £8 BILLION FRAUD HELPED FUND BIN LADEN

The Sunday Times on 31st March carried a report saying that criminals have stolen billions of pounds of British taxpayers’ money from VAT and benefit fraud and used tens of millions to fund terrorism, according to police and intelligence files.  The gang, which has links to the 7/7 London bombings in which 52 people died, is alleged to have sent 1% of its gains, or £80 million, to al-Qaeda in Pakistan and Afghanistan, where it funded madrasahs, training camps and other terrorist activities, according to the leaked files.
