Germany bans Islamic group Ansaar on suspicion of terrorist financing

($1 = 0.8341 euros) In 2019, police raided offices belonging to Ansaar and another organisation on suspicion of financing the Palestinian militant group Hamas, which is on a European Union terrorism blacklist. ($1 = 0.8340 euros)

A man who answered the phone at Ansaar’s main office in the western city of Duesseldorf declined to comment on the ban and raids. Seehofer said Ansaar and an affiliated organisation “spread a Salafist world view and finance terror around the world under the guise of humanitarian aid.”

The interior ministry said in a statement that about 1,000 police officers had taken part in raids on affiliates of Ansaar in 10 German states and that 150,000 euros ($180,000) in cash had been confiscated. Ansaar says on its website it provides humanitarian aid to people affected by war and crises by building or financing the construction of hospitals, orphanages and schools.
