Significant number of known Al-Qaida financiers and terrorism financiers such as Perouz Sedaghaty, Soliman Al-But'he, Youssef Nada, Ahmed Nasreddin, Yasin Al-Kadi, Mohammed Jamal Khalifa, Wael Hamza Julaidan, and others are free. The list of known Al-Qaida financiers and terrorism financiers that are free is growing.
The problem resides with the policies and institutions having such mechanisms as the International Convention for the Suppression of the Financing of Terrorism and the legal assistance from the U.N. Counter Terrorism Committee. Given the mechanisms no person has ever been extradited to stand trial for Al-Qaida financing and terrorism financing. Problem resides also in the mechanisms to bring charges against Al-Qaida financiers and terrorism financiers. Prosecutors encounter difficulty in converting intelligence into usable court evidence. There are complex constraints on sharing intelligence in court and complex efforts made to come up with open source evidence that can confirm the intelligence in court.
Must find an effective and productive way to convert intelligence into usable court evidence to bring charges against Al-Qaida financiers and terrorism financiers.
