Zein established an intricate global network of financial facilitators for ISIS, using hawalas and intermediaries to evade police detection and fund terrorist activities.
Waleed Ahmed Zein has served as an important ISIS financial facilitator in East Africa in recent years. He established an intricate ISIS financial facilitation network spanning Europe, the Middle East, the Americas and Eastern Africa.
Between 2017 and early 2018, Zein moved over $150,000 through his complex network. He deposited large sums of money into a personal account, claiming that the money came from a vehicle and spare auto parts company owned by a family member.
He also used an associate to conduct similar transactions including receiving money from around the world, primarily via hawala systems. Funds were then sent to ISIS fighters in Syria, Libya, and Central Africa.
Zein and his associates received instructions, money, and account information from an intermediary in an attempt to evade police surveillance. He was ultimately arrested by Kenyan security services in July 2018.
