The 21st Century Phenomenon



According to a UN list, opposition MPs claimed on 09/12/2009, 12 UN designated terrorists with links to Al Qaeda, are allowed to live in UK without the prospect of being arrested or deported has prompted calls for an urgent change in the law (see also – Londonstan).


Among the 12 suspects named on the UN list are a number of men accused of raising funds for a violent jihadist group with alleged links to Osama Bin Laden.


One of the men named on the UN Consolidated List is Mohammed al-Ghabra, a 29-year-old British citizen suspected of being a key figure in the Atlantic Airliners Plot.


Also on the list is Khaled al-Fawaz, a Kuwaiti living in London, who has been accused by the FBI of involvement in bombing American embassies, and Hani al Sayyid al Sebai, a 46-year-old Egyptian living in London.


Tahir Nasuf, 48, and members of his group; Ghuma Abd’rabbah, 52, a Libyan-born British citizen who is suspected of raising funds for the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG), Ghuma Abd’rabbah is understood to be living in the Birmingham area;  The  Libyan-born Abd Al-Rahman Al Faqih, 50 (see – AF-Case), and Mohammed Benhammedi who is also on the UN list.
Another suspected LIFG fund-raiser on the list is Abdulbasit Abdulrahim, 41, who holds British nationality and lives in London. However, the LIFG denies any links with al Qaeda and claims it supporters have been listed in order to appease Colonel Kaddafi. Abdulbasit Abdulrahim said: “The only reason people associated with the LIFG are on the UN list is to keep the Libyan government happy and improve relations between the UK and Libya.”


The others terror suspects living in the UK named on the list are: Saad Faqih; Farj Hassan Faraj Al Saadi, known as Hamza al-Liby; Mohammed Benhammedi; Al Sayyid Ahmed and Fathi Hussein Eliwah.


Individuals are placed on the list on the basis of evidence about their links with al Qaeda or the Taliban submitted by member states of the United Nations. Once their inclusion has been endorsed by the UN Security Council, banking and treasury officials in the individual’s country of residence are instructed to freeze their financial assets.


David Davies, Conservative MP for Monmouth and a member of the Home Affairs Select Committee, said: “It’s quite outrageous for these people to carry on living here, many of them on benefits. The Home Secretary should have the right to either lock them up or throw them out of the country, but for that to happen requires a change in the Human Rights Act.”


A spokesman for the Home Office said: “These individuals are here legally. If they breach any laws they will be prosecuted. We cannot comment on any security operations regarding individuals.”
