70-Year-Old Man Sentenced for Funding al-Shabab

A court in Mogadishu sentenced a 70-year-old man to seven years in prison and fined him $3,000 for money laundering and funding the al-Shabab group. The man, named Ali Hussein Isaac, was accused of sending $500,000 from his bank account to al-Shabab militants.

The court’s chairman, Saleh Daban, said the sentence was split into two parts: four years in prison for funding the group and three years for money laundering. Isaac was also fined $3,000.

Since last year, the Somali government has been working harder to cut off money to the al-Shabab group. Hundreds of bank accounts and phones linked to militants have been shut down during this time.
