Three Plead Guilty to Conspiracy to Provide Material Support to the Pakistani Taliban – FBI

On September 12, 2011, the Federal Bureau of Investigation reported that three Pakistani citizens pleaded guilty to conspiring to provide material support to the Pakistani Taliban, a designated foreign terrorist organization.

According to federal authorities, Irfan Ul Haq, Qasim Ali, and Zahid Yousaf conspired to provide the terrorist organization with false documentation and identification in order to smuggle a member of the Pakistani Taliban into the United States. Additionally, the investigation revealed that the defendants organized the operation in Ecuador and that they possessed personal knowledge that the individual seeking entry was a terrorist.

The three defendants are expected to be sentenced in December of this year, where they will each face a maximum of 15 years incarceration and a fine of up to $250,000.  Furthermore, as part of their plea agreement all three defendants will be removed to Pakistan following sentencing.
