Islamic charity co-founder convicted on tax charge

Sep 10th, 2010 Current Affairs

The Associated Press reports yesterday (9/9/10), in an article entitled "Islamic charity co-founder convicted on tax charge," that a federal jury has convicted the co-founder of an Islamic charity chapter accused of smuggling $150,000 to Muslim fighters in Chechnya. 

Pete Seda was convicted Thursday (9/9/10), of one count of conspiracy to defraud the government and one count of filing a false tax return. Seda claimed in defense that his accountant failed to disclose the money, intended as a tithe, on a tax return for the U.S. chapter of the Al-Haramain Islamic Foundation in Asheland, Ore. The foundation has been declared a foreign terrorist organization. 

Seda is scheduled for sentencing November 23. For the full text of the AP article, click here.
