Skip to comments.DOJ Keeping Islamic Bank Settlement Secret
Posted on 08/26/2011 9:49:44 AM PDT by bayouranger
The Justice Department has agreed to end its investigation into an international financial network with ties to the Muslim Brotherhood and a Saudi prince in a settlement in excess of $30 million, sources tell the Investigative Project on Terrorism.
But DOJ officials refuse to release a copy of the settlement or make any comment on it.
"Unfortunately, we're unable to provide anything in connection with this matter," DOJ spokesman Charles Miller wrote in response to a query Aug. 16. He did not contest the existence of the settlement with the Islamic Investment Company of the Gulf (IICG). Repeated attempts to obtain the settlement, or at least a clear explanation of why it cannot be released when most government settlements are a part of the public record, have been unsuccessful.
"We will have no further comment," Miller said Wednesday.
Reports of a grand jury investigation into an IICG domestic affiliate called Overland Capital surfaced early in 2007. Though the grand jury was convened in Boston in September 2006, a terror-financing prosecutor from DOJ was leading the tax evasion probe into the bank, the Wall Street Journal reported. Overland Capital allegedly was controlled by the Dar al-Maal al-Islami Trust (DMI), an Islamic financial institution founded by Saudi Prince Mohamed al-Faisal and which had at least two influential Muslim Brotherhood figures on its board, the Journal reported.

Most translucent administration in history.
where are our pubies?
The list, ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
I know where mine are. My question is where are the Pubbies?
I’m confused. WHY did the DOJ pay them $30 million?
Normally, when there is a settlement there is an explanation; however, in this case the records are sealed for some reason beyond even Steve Emerson’s knowledge.
I’m disgusted with what’s been going on with the DOJ and its’ soft-handed treatment of these koranimals who are Hell bent on destroying us.
That was in the 9/11 families lawsuit.
One of the partners of that law firm is Jamie Gorelick. Gorelick, of "the Gorelick Wall" fame, was on the 9/11 commission, the same commission that mentioned al Turabi of Sudan. Conflict of interest?
Al Turabi has a Florida connection too, as well as connections to both Baathist Iraq and Iran.
Gorelick, IIRC, was also on the Bush Commission aka the prewar intelligence commission regarding Iraq.

Thanks for the ping Piasa.
I hope more articles are written on this subject.
Thanks for all the info, Piasa.
Here is a follow-up article with Rep Frank Wolf(R-VA) saying “They have got to let this thing out.” referring to the ties to terrorism. He will be demanding the release of the docs this up coming week.
I agree, they are down right transparent at this point in time.
