In another monumental blunder, the corporate media in Trinidad is reporting once again on Shane Crawford, as a living person after they already claimed that he was killed in an airstrike in Syria. If Crawford is alive the very real threat that he poses to the Caribbean cannot be stressed on enough, if he is dead he is already a beacon to likeminded Caribbean citizens to emulate. Read the latest on Crawford in the following.
Trinidadian Shane Crawford is on a United Nations Terrorism Sanctions List for, joining terrorists fighting for the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (Isis).
The Office of the Attorney General in a statement yesterday stated that the UN Security Council had established a committee referred to as ISIL and Al-Qaida Sanctions Committee which imposed sanctions against Crawford on August 18.
Crawford, who also goes by the name Abu Sa’d a Trinidadi, appeared in an ISIS recruitment video last year where he called on Muslims in Trinidad to commit acts of violence against “non-believers”.
Crawford, the release stated was listed following a proposal submitted by the T&T Government.
The AG, having obtained an order from the High Court of T&T on March 31, declared Crawford a listed entity and ordered that his funds be frozen pursuant to the provisions of the Anti-Terrorism Act.
In September 2015, there were no listings which reflected poorly in the 4th Round Mutual Evaluation of T&T by the Caribbean Financial Action Task Force.
The Attorney General confirmed that other applications under the Anti-Terrorism Act are currently before the courts and that further listings and other actions are under consideration.
“The addition of Crawford to the ISIL & Al-Qaida Sanctions List is thus another significant step in T&T’s contribution to the fight against global terror,” the release stated.
