Description:

The Toledo Blade reported on June 4 that two local Muslims, Hor and Amera Akl, had been arrested for attempting to funnel money to a terrorist group.

CAIR national spokesman Ibrahim Hooper said “the fact that an FBI informant was involved in building a case against the Akls raises questions about the strength of the charges.”

“Whenever you have a case where the government is initiating the action, it raises red flags in terms of possible concerns about who really was the initiator of the alleged violation,” Mr. Hooper said. “We will have to wait and see how the case develops and we’ll obviously monitor it to make sure everybody’s due process rights are maintained.”
