LEBANESE BUSINESSMAN TIED BY US TREASURY TO HEZBOLLAH SENTENCED TO PRISON FOR MONEY LAUNDERING SCHEME INVOLVING THE EVASION OF US SANCTIONS

Imperial Valley News in the US on 10th August reported that Kassim Tajideen, 63, described as the operator of a network of businesses in Lebanon and Africa which the US Treasury designated as a financier of Hezbollah has been sentenced to 5 years in prison in the US.  He was designated by OFAC in 2009.  The case falls under DEA’s Project Cassandra, which targets Hezbollah’s global criminal support network, which operates as a logistics, procurement and financing arm for Hezbollah, and this investigation and others are part of the workload of the DoJ Hezbollah Financing and Narcoterrorism Team (HFNT), formed in January 2018.
