On Monday, Zoobia Shahnaz, a resident of New York, paid off for money laundering and terrorism financing. Shahnaz's curiosities and other cryptographs used to respond to these crimes.
According to a press conference released by the US Department of Justice, Shahnaz USD150 thousand came from the Islamic state (Also called terrorist groups called ISIS), with representatives from Pakistan, China and Turkey. USD22.5 thousand have been obtained through fraudulent loans through American Express, Chase, Discover and TD Bank.
Then, Shahnaz used a dozen credit cards to buy USD62 thousand to buy Bitcoin and other cryptoconversions, money laundering and, finally, another transfer USD65.5 thousand (without specifying the origin). ISIS-related companies in the aforementioned countries.
Shahnaz's actions between March and July 2017. Last year, Criptonoticias reported how he was arrested while trying to flee to Syria. At that time, he was jailed for 50 years. Now, this possible penalty has been reduced to 20 years and fine, in addition to the compensation of damages.
Shahnaz's investigation was directed by the FBI. The authorities revealed that the Islamic State propaganda had access to various websites, as well as forums and social networks related to the group's partners, where they allegedly issued violent messages.
FBI Deputy Director, William F. Sweeney, said Shahnaz's arrests would point out future criminals for similar crimes. However, a study carried out by the European Parliament last June indicated that it was not used to finance cryptoconferencing terrorism.
The Department's allegations in December 2017 contain no cryptoconference reference, probably due to the legal mix that existed on cryptococcal agents. This time, the press release becomes a cryptoconference as part of Shahnaz's money.
The New York state for the first time in the United States for the mediation of BitLicense mediation was the regulation of exchange, and since then, in many cases they use cryptographic states.
