According to a former informant for the Swiss intelligence who claims to have been recruited to infiltrate the Islamic Center of Geneva, managed by members of the Ramadan family, including Hani and Tariq, Ayman Al Zawahiri attended two meetings there in Geneva in March 1991.
The information was revealed this week in a Swiss German newspaper quoting the spy’s own memos after a trip to Egypt he made in 2005 at the request of Hani Ramadan. His records show he was able to confirm at least one contact between Hani Ramadan and Ayman Al Zawahiri in March 1991; his information indicates “several trips” of Zawahiri in Geneva. It also mentions the fact that the Al Qaeda leader was holding a Swiss passport under the name of Amin Othan (one of Zawahiri known aliases is Amin Othman).
We first published the information about the Geneva meetings on September 13, 2006 on this blog (Tariq Ramadan new links to terror).
