Islamic American Relief Agency and Five Persons Indicted

The Islamic American Relief Agency (the U.S. branch of an international Islamic charity) and five of its officers, employees or associates have been indicted for illegally transferring funds to Iraq, laundering money, stealing federal funds, and obstructing tax laws by, among other things, falsely denying that a procurement agent of Osama bin Laden had been an employee of the charity. The Islamic American Relief Agency, formerly known as the Islamic African Relief Agency–USA, was headquartered in Columbia, MO, and closed in 2004, when the U.S. Treasury Department designated it a global terrorist organization.
