CLEVELAND -- He founded the Islamic Center of Cleveland. Now, he, his family and his staff face charges for money laundering and other crimes.
Ahbrar Haque is the man in the center of the investigation. Now, a grand jury has widened the scope of the charges against he and his associates.
In February 2005, Federal agents raided the accounting offices of Haque, the Islamic Center's founder.
In April, he, his wife and two associates were charged in Federal Court for money laundering.
Now, 10 months later, 11 more of his associates have been charged.
Last February, federal agents removed box after box from Haque's accounting business, Ahbrar CPA, on Lorain Avenue in Cleveland.
The seizure of those documents, investigators say, are what lead to the new charges.
Haque and the 13 others are charged with creating false documentation for immigration purposes, money laundering, falsifying payroll records, filing false tax returns, mail and wire fraud and more.
Four of those charged Wednesday, including Haque, were also charged last April.
He along with his wife, brother and a long list of employees from the Cleveland area are now part of that growing list facing charges.
