Swedish Security Service Open Up about Al-Shabaab

Published torsdag 27 mars 2008 kl 13.52
The Swedish Security Servic offices in Stockholm

The Swedish Security Service is investigating three Swedish-Somalian men’s alleged activities within the militant Islamic organisation al-Shabaab.

The men are suspected of financially supporting al-Shabaab. The day after their arrest, the al-Shabaab organisation made the USA’s terrorist list, even though it is not included on the United Nation’s or the European Communion’s lists. According to Swedish law, financing an organisation that promotes or supports terrorism is illegal. For Mats Pålsson, head of the Swedish Security Service’s terrorist division, the question is not so much whether al-Shabaab are freedom fighters or terrorists, but that the men appear to be involved in terrorist crimes in Somalia.
