DoJ: Six Individuals Charged for Providing Material Support to the Pakistani Taliban
Six individuals located in South Florida and Pakistan have been indicted in the Southern District of Florida on charges of providing financing and other material support to the Pakistani Taliban, a designated foreign terrorist organization.   The charges were announced today by Wifredo A. Ferrer, U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Florida; John V. Gillies, Special Agent in Charge, FBI Miami Field Office, and the members of the South Florida Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF).


In closing, Mr. Ferrer noted, “Let me be clear that this is not an indictment against a particular community or religion.   Instead, today’s indictment charges six individuals for promoting terror and violence through their financial and other support of the Pakistani Taliban.   Radical extremists know no boundaries; they come in all shapes and sizes and are not limited by religion, age or geography.”
