Al-Qaeda Propagandists Babar Ahmad and Muslim cleric Abu Hamza al-Masri.
CNN NEWS: Five international terror suspects, including two wanted in Connecticut for running al-Qaida's Internet fundraising operation, could be extradited to the U.S. within weeks following a ruling Monday by a European tribunal. The European Court of Human Rights struck down a last-ditch appeal by the five when it upheld an earlier ruling permitting their extradition from London to the United States. The suspects have fought British and U.S. efforts to extradite them, in one case for a decade, by arguing that they would be subject to inhumane conditions in high security U.S. prisons.
The suspects, including Babar Ahmad and Muslim cleric Abu Hamza al-Masri, are accused of crimes such as raising funds for terrorists, could face life sentences in a maximum-security prison. Al-Masri was arrested in Britain in 2004 at the request of U.S. authorities, who have called him “a terrorist facilitator with a global reach on the internet.”
Babar Ahmad is accused of operating the Azzam network of websites from London which inclued the www.SupportersOfShariah.com website. U.S. and British authorities want to try him in federal court in New Haven because Azzam's email and website accounts were administered by an Internet service provider in Trumbull Conn. In addition, British authorities have said that most of the evidence against the two was gathered by U.S. agencies.
The U.S. indictment against Ahmad accuses him of conspiring to provide support to terrorists, including helping to ship gas masks to the Taliban and using U.S.-based websites to raise money for Chechen leader Shamil Basayev. Basayev claimed responsibility for the Beslan school massacre in Russia in 2004, two years before he was killed by Russian agents.
In the EUROPEAN COURT OF HUMAN RIGHTS, FIRST STATEMENT OF GLEN JENVEY: Even before 9/11 I had started to take a keen interest in the activities of Abu Hamza Al-Masri, the imam of Finsbury Park mosque and his organisation Supporters of Shariah. Soon after 9/11 I started a sting honey pot web-site called www.islamic-news.co.uk with the help of a friend based in America USA.
The sting was already making good progress as I had given the FBI access to the web-stats of my site www.islamic-news.co.uk (now off line). Abu Hamza’s web master had placed a link from his Supporters of Shariah web-site to mine and I had given the passwords to an American diplomat in Mexico who forwarded the information to the New York office of the FBI. They monitored everyone who logged onto Islamic-news from Abu Hamza’s www.SupportersOfShariah.com web site.
How Cybersleuths like private investigator Bill Warner Operate By Howard Altman: Shortly after 9/11, Glen Jenvey, an unemployed truck driver living near Stonehenge, began pretending to be a Pakistani man who believed in violent jihad. His counterterrorism, which took place in the second-floor study of his stone house, helped lead to the arrest of Abu Hamza al-Masri, one of Europe’s most vitriolic clerics.
“You have to hand it to these people,” says an Indian military official who spoke on the condition that he only be identified as “the brigadier.” Glen Jenvey and other cybersleuths have “done some real work that has had some real results.
