Islamic State funder illegally brought in 18 million pounds to Britain

A funder of Islamic State (ISIS) has brought in 18 million pounds into the United Kingdom and purchased immigrant status under ‘Golden Visa’ scheme, while London never question either the source of that investment or why the entire amount had entered through illegal channels. According to newspaper reports, Md. Shahid Uddin Khan and members of his family had smuggled-out millions of dollars from Bangladesh since 2009 and deposited into various bank accounts in United Arab Emirates. This family also has purchased immigrant status in Britain under Visa Tier 1, VAF Number 511702, and invested over 18 million pounds, while the entire amount had been dirty money.

Sitting in Britain, Md. Shahid Uddin Khan and his family are operating their businesses in Dubai [in United Arab Emirates]. According to newspaper reports, this family is having business relations with notorious Dawood Ibrahim’s D-Company and has been involved in trafficking in drugs and arms.

The Khans also are also funding Islamic State as well as other militancy groups and madrasas.

Britain has clearly become a nation accepting corruption money, drugs-money, and now even ‘investment’ from Islamic State or Al Qaeda. According to documentary evidences, during past 10 years, the United Kingdom has been exhibiting extreme greed in inviting anyone from around the world to invest in Britain and buy ‘Golden Visa’ as investors. Although the entire world is now extremely strict on issues such as money laundering, terror financing etc, Britain possibly now stands amongst those worst nations which would never hesitate is letting anyone continue money laundering or terror financing right by buying immigrant status as well as by bribing political parties.

On May 26, 2019, Britain’s largest daily The Sunday Times in a report titled ‘Tory Donor Charged With Arms Dealing And Funding Terrorism’ has exposed a shocking fact stating ruling Tory Party’s donor Md. Shahid Uddin Khan, who faces numerous charges and convictions in Bangladesh has managed to bring in dirty money equivalent to 12 million pounds to the United Kingdom, and British authorities had wholeheartedly welcomed this investment of millions of pounds of dirty money.

According to reports published in Blitz, The Daily Sun, Asian Tribune, Eastern Herald, Afternoon Voice, The World News, News Ghana and many other newspapers around the world, Md. Shahid Uddin Khan and his family are funding Islamic State and other militancy groups while they also are having business relations with Dawood Ibarhim’s D-Company in Dubai (United Arab Emirates).
