AUTO THEFT AND SMUGGLING IN THE UNITED STATES HAS BECOME A SOPHISTICATED BUSINESS AND INTERNATIONAL TERRORISTS, MIAMI-DADE AUTO THEFT TASK FORCE

Auto theft and smuggling in both the United States and Canada has become a sophisticated business and is one of the "staple enterprises" of many organized crime groups (and terrorists) throughout the world.

In 1995, the North American Export Committee (NAEC), comprised of law enforcement and insurance representatives from Canada and the United States, was formed to examine and combat this serious development which continues into 2009. The NAEC’s goal is to provide a model plan that can eventually be implemented at every port to stop the exportation of stolen vehicles.

This new model, which relies heavily upon electronic reporting of all exported vehicles, is already in use at the Customs Port of Miami and other test sites. Customs has been represented at the NAEC since its inception. Both the Office of Field Operations and the Office of Investigations have participated in all NAEC meetings, intelligence exchanges, and test site operations at various ports of entry.

SAIC/Miami Group Supervisor Peter Girard, had served as supervisor for the Miami-Dade Auto Theft Task Force, and implemented the NAEC’s original pilot program. The NAEC has honored Agent Girard and the Customs Service by instituting the NAEC Peter Girard Investigative Award. This annual award recognizes outstanding export-related auto theft investigations conducted in North America by groups or individuals.

The investigation started with a trip to Moscow and Kaliningrad, Russia, where Agent Diamond and Detective Jack Pierce of the Task Force instructed Russian police in auto theft investigation techniques. In Kaliningrad the local police requested assistance in identifying numerous vehicles that had been imported from Miami, Fla.

Subsequent investigations revealed an organized ring involved in the illegal export of stolen sports utility and luxury vehicles from the South Florida area to Russia. The vehicles stolen were being renumbered, and exported using counterfeit titles bearing counterfeit U.S. Customs export stamps.

Violators in the United States were mainly Polish nationals who had entered the country illegally using counterfeit German passports. By their own admission, in a one-year period violators had exported over 400 vehicles valued at several million dollars.

Approximately nine suspects were subsequently indicted and arrested, including the Polish nationals and the U.S. owners of an import/export company and a tow truck company. One suspect remains a fugitive, believed to be in Gdansk, Poland. The head of the organization in Miami (currently incarcerated) is also wanted in Germany for organized crime activities. Charges against the violators include exportation of stolen vehicles, interstate transportation of renumbered vehicles, and money laundering.

Other Customs personnel nominated and recognized by the NAEC Executive Committee for outstanding export investigations and seizures include Special Agent Alan Childers (SAIC/Miami), and the Outbound Enforcement Team (Los Angeles/Long Beach). Agent Childers and Detective Moe Traumell investigated an organization resulting in 18 indictments and the recovery of over $2.1 million in stolen property. The Los Angeles Outbound Enforcement Team, in conjunction with their local FEAR (Foreign Export and Recovery Team) Task Force, investigated an organized auto theft ring smuggling stolen vehicles to the Middle East.

FORMER PROFESSOR INDICTED IN MUSLIM CHARITIES CASE, SAMI AL- ARIAN INDICTED AGAIN.

Former Professor Indicted In Muslim Charities Case, Sami al-Arian Indicted Again !

By Jerry Markon Washington Post Staff Writer Friday, June 27, 2008;
A former Florida professor who had pleaded guilty to aiding a terror organization was indicted yesterday on criminal charges that he refused to testify before a grand jury investigating whether Islamic charities in Northern Virginia were financing terrorists.


(Also see http://wwwwbipicomlink.blogspot.com/2008/05/confessions-of-federal-confidential.html continued links in Tamap Fl to support of terrorism)

The indictment (see here which is signed by US Attorney Gordon Kromberg) of Sami al-Arian triggered outrage from his family and Muslim groups that have mounted a national campaign to secure his release from prison. Arian had already been jailed for a year on civil contempt charges. Legal experts said it is rare for the government to then add criminal counts. "This is a really dirty game the government is playing," said Arian's daughter, Laila. "They've already put him through enough. Enough is enough. This will have repercussions in the American Muslim community and throughout the world." ( daughters veiled threat)

Arian was accused in Tampa in 2003 of conspiracy to commit racketeering and murder and to aid the Palestinian Islamic Jihad group, but his trial ended two years later in an acquittal on some charges and a mistrial on others. He later pleaded guilty to a single count of conspiracy in one of the nation's highest-profile terrorism cases. He was sentenced to 57 months in prison, which he finished serving in April. He was expected to be deported, but prosecutors in Alexandria are seeking his testimony.

He was charged again yesterday in
U.S. District Court in Alexandria with two counts of criminal contempt. He could face additional jail time if convicted, but there is no maximum or minimum penalty.

Prosecutors in Alexandria want Arian to reveal what they think are his ties to the International Institute of Islamic Thought, or IIIT, a Herndon think tank that is one of the key organizations under investigation, according to Arian's lawyers and court documents. The six-year-old probe, which federal officials have called the nation's largest terrorism-financing investigation, is focused on a Herndon-based network of Muslim charities, businesses and think tanks. They have denied any terrorist ties.


The Northern Virginia investigation burst into public view in March 2002, when federal agents raided homes and businesses in Herndon and elsewhere in the region. Muslim groups have labeled the probe a fishing expedition, but law enforcement officials have defended it as highly complicated, involving a complex trail of international transactions among corporations and charitable entities.

Arian, who taught computer science at the University of South Florida, twice refused to testify before the grand jury in Alexandria, on Oct. 16, 2007, and on March 20, according to yesterday's two-page indictment.

NEO-NAZI GORAN DAVIDOVIC AND NATIONAL FORMATION IN KULA AND NOVI SAD SERBIA THREATENS TO KILL JOURNALIST, BAR FIGHTER KOVACEVIC LIVES IN KULA.












KULA SERBIA: Neo-Nazis threaten to kill independent journalist, from March 11th 2008 U.S. State Department Report . The Committee to Protect Journalists is alarmed by death threats made against Dinko Gruhonjic, head of the Vojvodina branch of the independent news agency BETA and chairman of the Independent Journalists’ Association of Vojvodina, by a local neo-Nazi group in Novi Sad Serbia, see video here or click on photos above.
The threats, which were posted on a neo-Nazi Web site this week (www.stormfront.org ), stem from Gruhonjic’s coverage of Goran Davidovic (his photo above and National Formation aka Nacionalni stroj, a neo-Nazi group based in the northern Serbian city of Novi Sad (and Kula Serbia), the journalist told CPJ.
A Serbian newspaper reported Wednesday 6/25/08 that Binghamton NY Bar Fighter Miladin Kovacevic had been spotted in the northern city of Novi Sad and in his nearby hometown of Kula Serbia. Paul Holstein, chief division counsel for the Albany division of the FBI, said the agency is doggedly pursuing Kovacevic.
Branka Kovacevic said that her son, who is a student at New York state’s Binghamton University,experienced “serious torture“ while in prison, after being thrown in with “the worst criminals“, and received death threats.
Branka also told reporters that Miladin was also not allowed to talk to a lawyer, and decided to leave the U.S. after receiving threatening phone calls, adding that he is currently “in his place of residence”. “We realized that we had to go. It was better to die on the way or disappear together than to disappear over there,” she said.
The American ambassador to Serbia said Wednesday ,7/16/08, brutally beaten college student, Bryan Steinhauer, was in grim shape and implored the Serbian government to hand over the hulking fugitive charged in the case. Bryan Steinhauer of Brooklyn "weighs less than 99 pounds and is unable to eat" or speak, Ambassador Cameron Munter said in a stinging statement. "He remains in a coma after 2-1/2 months." Munter was countering recent reports in the Serbian media that suggested Steinhauer, 22, was in good condition after he was pummeled on May 4 at a Binghamton University bar, allegedly by Miladin Kovacevic. "This was not an ordinary bar fight," the ambassador said. "As he lay on the floor, Steinhauer was repeatedly kicked in the face and head, to the point where he had multiple fractures on both sides of his face and his skull."
"We are all over this case," Holstein said. The U.S. has an extradition treaty with Serbia, although this in dispute as Serbia claims the 1902 extradition treaty lapsed when the country reorganized see here. and there is now no extradition treaty between the U.S. and Serbia.

Miladin Kovacevis favorite band is Pro Pain a New York City based hard core heavy metal death "Skinhead" band playing in Europe that fits the Neo Nazi profile, see one of their videos here , "IN FOR THE KILL"
GARY MESKIL-PRO PAIN.... No, I don't think so. There is a mix of kids in the crowd ranging from the more younger punks and skinheads, backpackers I guess you would call them, to old school hard core to old school metal. Just regular guys. I think it is a nice mix. I think it is because we don't have that mentality of being some type of subculture or a gang mentality. We don't alienate our audience and I think it has shown over the years that if you are an old school metal head, you are not going to be reluctant to go down to a PRO-PAIN show.
Gruhonjic’s reports publicized the National Formation group’s activities, including a 2005 organized attack where neo-Nazis armed with crowbars, attacked participants marking the anniversary of Kristallnacht—a pogrom against Jews throughout Germany and parts of Austria in 1938—according to local and international press reports.

In November 2006, a local court convicted 18 of the group’s members of inciting hatred and endangering public security. The group’s leader, Goran Davidovic (his photo above), was sentenced to one year in prison, according to local and international press reports. Davidovic, who is currently appealing the decision, is not in custody. Davidovic and other members of the group have threatened Gruhonjic in the past, local sources told CPJ.

Davidovic denounced the journalist as an enemy of the Serbian people and as a traitor in an autobiography published in December 2006. Gruhonjic has filed a civil defamation suit against Davidovic for the comments, the journalist told CPJ.“We call on authorities to thoroughly investigate the threats made against our colleague Dinko Gruhonjic, and take immediate measures to protect the safety of Gruhonjic and his family,” CPJ Executive Director Joel Simon said. “Every effort should be made to bring those responsible to justice without delay.”

Police are currently investigating the threats made against Gruhonjic but no suspects have been detained. Local journalists told CPJ they are frightened by the threats made against Gruhonjic and angered by the lack of reaction from authorities, which they say exacerbates the vulnerable position of independent journalists in Serbia.

Nacionalni stroj (National Formation) their group photo above, a neo-Nazi organization from the Vojvodina region (KULA & NOVI SAD), orchestrated several incidents in 2005. Charges were laid against 18 of the leading members in late 2005, and each of them faced up to eight years in prison. The group was still active in 2008, as was demonstrated by a display of religious hatred.
A Serbian newspaper reported Wednesday 6/25/08 that Binghamton NY Bar Fighter Miladin Kovacevic had been spotted in the northern city of Novi Sad and in his nearby hometown of Kula Serbia.

Blood and Honour has a branch in Kula & Novi Sad Serbia, where it is called Krv i čast. Its website claims that the group intends "to propagate revolutionary idea of National Socialism without compromise. Also, the intention of Serbian Blood and Honour Division is to motivate all NS followers to radical activities and not only to passive observing or listening to the music." Since 2001, this organization, with chapters in several Serbian cities (Kula and Novi Sad), organized several memorial concerts on the anniversary of Adolf Hitler's birth.

BAR FIGHTER MILADIN KOVACEVIC HAS FLED U.S. FOR HIS HOME TOWN KULA SERBIA, NEO NAZI GROUP IN KULA NOVI SAD SERBIA IS THE NATIONAL FORMATION

BAR FIGHTER MILADIN KOVACEVIC HIDING OUT IN KULA SERBIA AREA.

Bryan Steinhauer did not punch Serb nazi Miladin Kovacevic, see exerts from Binghamton police report below printed in local paper;
Witnesses have told Binghamton police that an argument erupted May 4 between the victim, 22-year-old Bryan Steinhauer, and three other men, including Serbian national Miladin Kovacevic.
The American ambassador to Serbia said Wednesday ,7/16/08, brutally beaten college student, Bryan Steinhauer, was in grim shape and implored the Serbian government to hand over the hulking fugitive charged in the case. Bryan Steinhauer of Brooklyn "weighs less than 99 pounds and is unable to eat" or speak, Ambassador Cameron Munter said in a stinging statement. "He remains in a coma after 2-1/2 months." Munter was countering recent reports in the Serbian media that suggested Steinhauer, 22, was in good condition after he was pummeled on May 4 at a Binghamton University bar, allegedly by Miladin Kovacevic. "This was not an ordinary bar fight," the ambassador said. "As he lay on the floor, Steinhauer was repeatedly kicked in the face and head, to the point where he had multiple fractures on both sides of his face and his skull."
See Broome County bail receipt and partial Binhamton police report at this link, click here.

It is unclear if the group saw Bryan Steinhauer make advances toward the woman — who wasn’t the fugitive’s girlfriend — or if she told her boyfriend about the situation. The woman — whom police have interviewed — later denied Steinhauer made those advances. “She said that he hadn’t been rude to her,” Binghamton Police Capt. Alex Minor said. “They were arguing and then Kovacevic stepped into finish it,” Binghamton Police Capt. Alex Minor said Thursday.

As the brutish SUNY-Binghamton basketball player and his friends drove from the Rathskeller bar, the scene of his alleged beating of fellow student Bryan Steinhauer, the scrawny victim slipped into a coma. Officers responding to the May 4 incident thought he was at death's door. "Sanel, why did you do that? He didn't even touch me!" a sobbing Melissa Cartagena screamed in the car at her boyfriend, Sanel Softic, according to one of several detailed statements in an 80-page police report obtained by The Post. Softic replied: "I don't care. He touched your ass." Kovacevic then told everyone to shut up. "It doesn't matter. It happened," he said, according to a statement from friend Emir Karic. "Don't talk about it. We'll see what happens tomorrow." The trio, along with Karic and another woman, then drove to Softic's house in Binghamton

Meanwhile, Steinhauer, 22, remains in a medically induced coma. He suffered severe head injuries when Kovacevic and pals, Edi Dzubur, 24, and Santel Softic, 21, allegedly stomped Steinhauer in the fight at Rathskeller's bar after the victim danced with a girlfriend of one of the assailants. "They just started beating the crap out of him," Nanni said. "There was no need for them to do that. They stomped on his head and beat him up. The victim is about 5-foot-6 and 145 lbs. You see how big [Kovacevic] is." (6' 9" 280 lbs), see his INTERPOL international wanted poster, click here.

Miladin Kovacevic is from Kula Serbia, his parents live there, Members of the Neo Nazi Union Confederation participate in continued rallies agaisnt Jews and gays in the streets of Novi Sad Serbia, also in the area is the Neo Nazi group "The National Formation".

Paul Holstein, chief division counsel for the Albany division of the FBI, said the agency is doggedly pursuing Kovacevic. "We are all over this case," Holstein said. The U.S. has an extradition treaty with Serbia, although this in dispute as Serbia claims the 1902 extradition treaty lapsed when the country reorganized see here.

A Serbian newspaper reported Wednesday 6/25/2008. that Kovacevic had been spotted in the northern city of Novi Sad and in his nearby hometown of Kula.

It was better to die on the way or disappear together than to disappear over there,” she said.


How can Serbia become the center for modern Nazi fans whose idol Hitler bent every effort to exterminate Jews, gypsies and of course Serbs? Hitler even managed to be quite efficient in this area.

Today's neonazis are mostly young skinheads with a newly composed homicidal ideology : kill the gays first, then the Jews, with the gypsies as an ever-popular main dish. But how do Serbs re-imagine themselves as fascist killers rather than fascist prey?

Skinhead groups and other radical organizations continue to be active in Serbia, including events denying war crimes, such as the public discussion at the Faculty of Law of theUniversity of Belgrade in May 2005 entitled “The Truth About Srebrenica.”

More frequently, nationalist media and extremist groups threatened or attacked human rights NGOs andindependent media. Sonja Biserko, head of the Helsinki Committee for Human Rights in Serbia, has been accused of spying and being an enemy to the Serb people; the tabloids, which spearheaded the accusations, subsequently published her private residential mailing address.

The police and judicial response has been muted. In November 2005, the neo-Nazigroup National Machine (KULA & NOVI SAD SERBIA) attacked participants at a public debate on the Fascist threat in NoviSad. For the first time, such an incident triggered a strong state response, with police arresting members of the group and authorities publishing a list of neo-Nazi and Fascist groups, paving the way for more effective prosecution of hate speech and crimes.


On October 7th, in Novi Sad, an undisrupted celebration of the birthday ofthe Nazi murderer Heinrich Himmler, directed by Goran Davidovic "Führer" and his followers from the "National front" was stopped.


Nacionalni stroj (National Formation), a neo-Nazi organization from the Vojvodina region (KULA & NOVI SAD), orchestrated several incidents in 2005.

BAR FIGHTER MILADIN KOVACEVIC HDING OUT IN SERBIA, HE NEARLY BEATS TO DEATH FELLOW BINGHAMTON UNIVERSITY STUDENT

BAR FIGHTER HIDING OUT IN SERBIA, KULA, Serbia - The wealthy parents of a hulking Serbian basketball player charged with viciously beating a Brooklyn student admitted they helped their son become an international fugitive by whisking him out of the country and back home because he had become a "scapegoat."

In the an exclusive interview with The Post,
Miladin Kovacevic's psychiatrist mother, Branka, said she urged her 6-foot-9, 260 pound son to flee US authorities after he was bailed out "because it had become a media circus where his voice was not being heard." His 6-foot-5 father, Peter Kovacevic, an orthopedic surgeon, said, "We feel he is a victim of small-town values ganging up against a foreigner. He was targeted because he was Serb and a very large man." Branka Kovacevic said that her son, who is a student at New York state’s Binghamton University, experienced “serious torture“ while in prison, after being thrown in with “the worst criminals“, and received death threats.

Branka also told reporters that Miladin was also not allowed to talk to a lawyer, and decided to leave the U.S. after receiving threatening phone calls, adding that he is currently “in his place of residence”. “We realized that we had to go. It was better to die on the way or disappear together than to disappear over there,” she said.

There are several Neo-Nazi groups and organizations in Serbia. (SKINHEADS). While Neo-Nazism in Germany mostly focuses on racial and political intolerance, Neo-Nazism in Serbia is mostly based on national and religious intolerance. Serbia was a Nazi-occupied puppet state during WWII (1941–1944).

Belgrade 9/18/2007 The association of Serbian Jews has asked the government to ban a neo-Nazi rally in the country's northern regional capital of Novi Sad, fearing a resurgence of the ethnic tensions and nationalism that previously led to the bloody breakup of the former Yugoslavia. The rally, planned by the neo-Nazi Nacionalni Stroj organization, has been scheduled for October 7 under the slogan "Serbian March, a March for Serbian Unity" and advertised on several ultra-nationalist and right-wing websites.

Federal lawmakers have called on Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice to put pressure on Serbia to return Miladin Kovacevic to the United States and to revoke the diplomatic immunity of a Serbian vice consul who apparently helped him flee the country.

See Broome County bail receipt and partial Binhamton police report at this link, click here.

"The more we learn about the consulate actions here, the more it stinks," U.S. Sen. Charles E. Schumer, D-N.Y., said in a joint statement with U.S. Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, D-N.Y., and U.S. Rep. Maurice Hinchey, D-Hurley.

A Serbian consular official who went upstate to bail out a compatriot suspected in a vicious beating has disappeared after allegedly helping the brute flee the country, officials said yesterday. Vice consul Igor Milosevic "was the bagman here and we know he is MIA," said an official briefed on the effort to bring suspect Miladin Kovacevic, 20, back to the United States to face trial.

Kovacevic, a 6-foot-9, 260-pound center for Binghamton University's basketball team, allegedly beat a much smaller fellow student - Bryan Steinhauer, of Brooklyn - in a May 4 bar brawl.

Kovacevic flew back to his native Serbia out of Newark Airport after Milosevic plunked down $100,000 to bail him out on June 6, US officials said.
The diplomat had allegedly furnished Kovacevic with an emergency passport after Kovacevic's was confiscated.

"We don't know if [Milosevic] was a rogue guy in the embassy or if it was ordered from high up," said Sen. Charles Schumer. "I've never seen anything like this and Serbia has to be made to realize that if they hide this guy and don't return him, there will be serious consequences."

Serbian media reported that Kovacevic's parents - wealthy physicians who live in a suburb of Belgrade - gave Milosevic the money. "His father is a doctor and seems to have well-connected friends that made phone calls and were able to get this special passport," said Binghamton Police Sgt. Arnold Nanni. Branka Kovacevic said that her son, who is a student at New York state’s Binghamton University, experienced “serious torture“ while in prison, after being thrown in with “the worst criminals“, and received death threats.

Branka also told reporters that Miladin was also not allowed to talk to a lawyer, and decided to leave the U.S. after receiving threatening phone calls, adding that he is currently “in his place of residence”. “We realized that we had to go. It was better to die on the way or disappear together than to disappear over there,” she said.

Both the FBI and Interpol issued warrants for Kovacevic's arrest yesterday. Authorities were also looking into whether Milosevic - a career diplomat - could be charged. "He could be charged with aiding a fugitive, but there are tons of issues of diplomatic immunity," said Paul Holstein of the FBI's Albany field office.

Officials at the Serbian consulate in Manhattan told The Post that Milosevic was on vacation. It was unclear if Milosevic is related to Serbia's late war-criminal dictator Slobodan Milosevic. Consul General Slobodan Nenadovic declined to comment and officials at both the country's UN Mission and Washington, DC, embassy did not return calls.

Meanwhile, Steinhauer, 22, remains in a medically induced coma. He suffered severe head injuries when Kovacevic and pals, Edi Dzubur, 24, and Santel Softic, 21, allegedly stomped Steinhauer in the fight at Rathskeller's bar after the victim danced with a girlfriend of one of the assailants.

MUSLIM TERRORISTS PLANNED TO BUY WEAPONS FOR "ALLAH'S CAUSE" AND USED CAR PARTS STRIPPED FROM STOLEN VEHICLES TO RAISE FUNDS, AUSTRALIA.

Jihad was 'religious duty' for terror accused, court hears.

Members of an alleged terrorist organisation felt compelled to pursue violent jihad because Australia was a land at war, a court has heard. Crown prosecutor Richard Maidment, SC, told a Supreme Court jury Abdul Nacer Benbrika taught his alleged followers bloody jihad was their religious duty.

Benbrika, 48, of Dallas, is accused of being the leader of an organisation plotting a terrorist act against "kuffars," translated as unbelievers, to avenge the killing of Muslims overseas.


"That teaching and philosophy underpins this organisation," Mr Maidment said.
Benbrika, and his 11 fellow accused have all pleaded not guilty to terrorism offences. The court had previously heard of the group's alleged plans to carry out attacks on the MCG and Crown Casino.

During his closing address today, Mr Maidment told the jury to look for sinister inferences in hundreds of recorded telephone conversations played throughout the men's trial, which has taken nearly five months. He said the men had planned to buy weapons for "Allah's cause" and used car parts stripped from stolen vehicles to raise funds. The mujahideen "brothers in Chechnya" also stole to support Allah's cause: "You just see all those macho videos where they are all holding AKs and all shooting, you don't see what they do behind … They don't do it every single day, man, they do this." Mr Maidment said the men were involved in a car-stripping scheme to raise funds for an alleged terror organisation to which they belonged.

Mr Maidment said when one of the accused, Ezzit Raad, raised concerns about stealing he was told it was lawful to take the blood and money of a "kuffar".
"Imagine going to prison for Allah, every second you are there you get a reward," Ahmed Raad allegedly told his older brother.

Mr Maidment said despite having no direct involvement in the stolen cars, Benbrika suspected he would be arrested following police raids over the car thefts. "Don't you think that I should be the first on their list," the court heard Benbrika asked Hany Taha, another of the accused.

Mr Maidment said Taha and Benbrika both believed police were using the stolen car racket as a cover to probe the group's activities. (STOLEN CAR SCAMS APPEARS TO BE STANDARD OPERATING PROCEDURE FOR MUSLIM TERROR CELLS AROUND THE WORLD) "What he's concerned about is that the true purpose of the organisation is being revealed," Mr Maidment said.

The other accused men are;
Abdullah Merhi, 23, of Fawkner;
Aimen Joud, 23, of Hoppers Crossing;
Ahmed Raad, 25, of Fawkner;
Fadl Sayadi, 28, of Coburg;
Ezzit Raad, 26, of Preston;
Shoue Hammoud,28, of Hadfield;
Bassam Raad, 26, of Brunswick;
Amer Haddara, 28, of Yarraville;
Majed Raad, 24, of Coburg;
Shane Kent, 31, of Meadow Heights;
Hany Taha, 33, of Hadfield.

JFK AIRPORT TERROR PLOT INCLUDES "OTHER SUSPECTS" OVERSEAS, INTERNET COMES INTO PLAY AGAIN.

Official: JFK Airport Terror Plot Could Include Other Suspects Overseas

NEW YORK — The investigation into the thwarted plot to bomb
John F. Kennedy International Airport is widening beyond the four men in custody, with more suspects sought outside the U.S. for their suspected roles, a law enforcement official said Friday.

The defendants identified last weekend were "just a piece of it," the official told The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity because of not being authorized to speak publicly. "We are definitely seeking more players. We are targeting others overseas."

The official declined to provide details about the possible suspects, or in what countries they are being sought. Law enforcement officials, through the use of an informant, were able to undermine the airport plot in its early stages. The four suspects made trips to the airport, took video and photographs, drew diagrams and collected information. They then hoped to shop their information to individuals with the capacity to pull off their stated plan of causing "greater destruction than the
Sept. 11 attacks," the official said.

According to court documents, the men sought the help of
Jamaat al Muslimeen, or JAM, a Muslim organization based in Trinidad -- a known violent group involved in killings, kidnappings and weapons trafficking over the past two decades. The group staged a coup attempt in 1990, storming the Trinidad Parliament building and taking the prime minister hostage.

Alleged mastermind
Russell DeFreitas, a U.S. citizen from Guyana, hatched the plan when he worked as a cargo employee at JFK 10 years ago, authorities said. He is being held in New York on conspiracy charges.

MORE MUSLIM CIGARETTE SMUGGLING & MONEY LAUNDERING THIS TIME QUEENS NY VIA DEARBORN MI

Illegal Cigarette Traffickers Snuffed Out. REPORT U.S. Cigarette Smuggling Still Funds Terrorism.

ALBANY—A federal indictment has been opened against 27 illegal cigarette traffickers who allegedly laundered money, sold millions of counterfeit tax stamps and purchased large quantities of cigarettes in Virginia for resale in New York and Michigan.


The 17-month-long investigation concluded late Tuesday when nine indictments against the 27 people, 21 of whom are from New York City or Yonkers, were returned in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia.

SEE Prior Post; Saturday, May 31, 2008, POLICE SAY SMUGGLED CIGARETTE CRIME RING PUT OUT OF BUSINESS IN TAMPA SCAM, MAYBE NOT SO MUCH, OLD HABITS HARD TO KICK.

The long-term investigation was conducted by New York State Department of Taxation and Finance investigators working with the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Virginia, federal agents from ATF and IRS in Richmond, investigators from the Virginia Alcohol Beverage Control Board and the King George County Sheriff’s Department, and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

Charges against the 27 people included criminal conspiracy, trafficking in contraband cigarettes, money laundering and felony possession of firearms and ammunition. Nineteen of the suspects are in custody.

In the fall of 2006, an undercover storefront location designated as KG Wholesale was established in King George, Virginia, which was being operated by undercover agents from the Tax Department. The storefront was wired for video and audio surveillance to record the identities and activities of individuals who would arrive to purchase cigarettes.

During the course of the investigation, undercover agents conducted more than 142 transactions. In these transactions the defendants paid $6.1 million in cash to purchase 295,000 cartons of untaxed cigarettes most of which were destined for re-sale to wholesalers and retailers in the New York City area.

It is also alleged that some of the defendants sold or attempted to sell 6.2 million in counterfeit cigarette stamps to the undercover agents, and that one traded two handguns and ammunition to agents in exchange for cigarettes.

Nicholas Yakoumakis, 27, of Queens, is charged with various counts of criminal conspiracy, trafficking in contraband cigarettes, money laundering, and felony possession of firearms and ammunition.

The disparity between state taxation of tobacco products along with the discounted prices to certain populations, such as Native Americans, garner cigarette smugglers huge profits. "For example, a pack of cigarettes that costs $8 in New York and New Jersey will only cost $4 in 'tobacco states' like Virginia and North Carolina," the report explains. "The profit on a standard diverted load of 1,500 contraband cartons [of cigarettes] could be as high as $60,000."

"Recent law enforcement investigations ... have directly linked those involved in illicit tobacco trade to infamous terrorist organizations such as Hezbollah, Hamas, and al Qaeda,".

Arab-Americans have a corner on the cigarette smuggling market in New York where "tight-knit, nationality-based networks, primarily families through blood or marriage of Lebanese, Yemeni, Jordanian, and Palestinian descent" rely on Arab-owned convenience markets to peddle their contraband cigarettes. According to the report, 60 percent of all convenience stores are now Arab-owned in the state. The ethnic and familial character of the networks make it hard for law enforcement to penetrate these networks. And as recent prosecutions have revealed, cigarette smuggling flourishes and has been linked to terrorist financing. See list of names below.

Charged with criminal conspiracy, trafficking in contraband cigarettes and money laundering are:
Suliman Al-Ghananim, 46, and Roxanne Al-Ghananim, 42, both of the Bronx.
