- U.S. Justice Department Announces Hizbullah Financing and Narcoterrorism Team
Attorney General Jeff Sessions Thursday announced the creation of the Hizbullah Financing and Narcoterrorism Team (HFNT), a group of experienced international narcotics trafficking, terrorism, organized crime, and money laundering prosecutors and investigators. HFNT is tasked with investigating individuals and networks providing support to Hizbullah, and pursuing prosecutions in appropriate cases.
HFNT will begin by assessing the evidence in existing investigations, including cases stemming from Project Cassandra, a law enforcement initiative targeting Hizbullah’s drug trafficking and related operations. (U.S. Department of Justice)
