“Hilali cleared of charity terror funds allegation,” from AAP, with thanks to JE:
DISASTER-prone Sheik Taj al-Din al-Hilali has been cleared of claims he diverted charitable funds to the Lebanese terrorist group Hezbollah.
The controversial sheik has been told by the Australian Federal Police that he has no case to answer.
The Lebanese Muslim Association was told in writing on Tuesday there was no evidence to support the claim that the sheik had diverted $16,000 in donations from Australian Muslims to a radio station with links to Hezbollah.
“The AFP assessment has not identified any evidence to support an investigation of persons for terrorist financing offences,” AFP spokesman Warren Gray wrote.
