314(a) Results Greatly Enhance Case Involving Material Support to Terrorism

A multi-agency task force, led by the Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement and including the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Internal Revenue Service Criminal Investigation, is investigating violations related to money laundering, tax fraud and material support to terrorism. As a result of this investigation, 33 search warrants have been executed and over 400 Grand Jury subpoenas for bank account and brokerage accounts have been issued. To date, two suspects have been arrested; one has been convicted of immigration violations and the other suspect has been indicted for violations of immigration laws and the International Emergency Economic Powers Act. This investigation has been greatly enhanced by the results of a 314(a) request, which identified over 200 bank and other financial institution accounts affiliated with the targets of the investigation.
