Mohamed Kazali Salleh
Place of Birth: Singapore;
Mohamed Kazali Sallehm is a Singaporean man charged with providing about S$1,000 (US$740) to a member of Islamic State terrorist group to facilitate terrorist operations in Syria.
Kazali was arrested by Malaysian Special Branch officers in December 2018. He was deported to Singapore and handed to the Internal Security Department in January 2019 for investigations into his terrorism-related activities.
Kazali was also subject to a detention order under the Internal Security Act (ISA) for his support of Islamic State terrorist group.
He was a close associate of a Syria-based Islamic State militant known as Akel, whose real name is Wan Mohd Aquil Wan Zainal Abidin.
Akel, a Malaysian, was believed to be the most senior Islamic State terrorist in Syria before he reportedly died in March 2019.
An investigation by the Singapore Police Force found Kazali allegedly provided money to Akel on three occasions in 2013 and 2014.
Kazali allegedly handed over the cash at a bus terminal in Johor Baru, Malaysia, and transferred the sums from Western Union branches in Singapore and Malaysia.
He purportedly intended for these funds to be used to fund terrorism activities in Syria.
To prevent him spreading radical ideas to other inmates, Kazali will be held separately and continue being rehabilitated while serving his sentence.
