An Arizona man has been indicted for lying to FBI agents about his work on behalf of the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development.
Akram Musa Abdallah was interviewed by FBI agents in January 2007 and denied raising money for HLF. In fact, the indictment charges, he helped organize HLF fundraisers in the Phoenix area.
In January 2007, when the interviews occurred, prosecutors and agents were gearing up for the Hamas-support trial of HLF and five former officials. That ended in a mistrial in October. Now, those same prosecutors and agents are gearing up for the retrial, scheduled to begin Sept. 15.
