Pakistani Convicted of Illegal Money Transfer

Pakistan Link, news report, Posted: Nov 26, 2008

WASHINGTON DC - A Pakistani man has been sentenced to 110 months in prison by a court in Baltimore for using the hawala system of transferring money from the United States to Pakistan, reports Pakistan Link. Saifullah Anjum Ranjha was accused of using illegal hawala channels which are hard to track. Officials suspect it's sometimes used to launder money by bypassing financial institutions. According to his guilty plea, Mr Ranjha operated a money remittance business known as Hamza, Inc in Washington. From 2003-2007, a cooperating witness was caught by a sting operation where a witness pretended to be involved in international drug and weapons trafficking. He gave Ranjha and his associates $2.2 million in government funds to transfer abroad.
