On Trial in the US, Hizballah Financier and His Interests in a Congo Development Project

A business network of Hizballah financier Kassim Tajideen, who is scheduled for a December 6 plea hearing in the US, developed a high-rise building project in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Tajideen, a Lebanese businessman extradited to the US in March 2017, was indicted for conspiracy to use businesses in the Middle East and Africa to evade sanctions. The US Department of the Treasury sanctioned Tajideen and seven of his companies between 2009 and 2010 for providing support to Hizballah.
