US v. Hodroj, Hassan, et al.
Philadelphia, PA


Hassan Hodroj and Dib Hani Harb were indicted in November 2009 on charges of conspiring to provide material support to the terrorist group Hizballah. This allegedy involves 1,200 Colt M4 Carbines (machine guns). Harb and other defendants—including Moussa Ali Hamdan and Hasan Antar Karak—were also charged with conspiring to provide material support to Hizballah in the form of proceeds from the sale of fraudulent passports, counterfeit money and stolen (genuine) money. In addition, Hamdan and several other defendants were charged with several counts of transporting stolen goods, trafficking in counterfeit goods, and making false statements to government officials. A 2010 court filing said the trial of the defendants has been delayed because they are fugitives.
