Jihad Watch: Egyptian national convicted in Virginia of lying about business dealings with Hamas leader
ALEXANDRIA, Va. -- An Egyptian national who ran a now-defunct bank in New Jersey was found guilty Tuesday of lying to federal agents about business dealings with a leader of the militant group Hamas.
A jury convicted Soliman Biheiri, 53, who ran the BMI Inc. bank, of making false statements to federal investigators by denying a business relationship with Mousa Abu Marzook, the political leader of Hamas [and former Fairfax County resident]. ...
The agents testified Biheiri told them he had no business or personal relationship with Marzook. Financial records and court testimony showed Marzook helped bring $1 million in investments to Biheiri's company."
