Yassin Al Kadi interviewed over freezing of assets

In an interview to the Saudi Okaz newspaper published on December 26, 2006, Yassin Al Kadi confirmed that the Saudi kingdom has submitted an application to the UN to lift his name from the list of associates of the Taliban, Osama Bin Laden and Al Qaeda. Al Kadi claims to have lost $200 million in international contracts due to his designation, and to have spent nearly 50 million Riyals ($13,000,000) in lawyers’ fees for his defense since 2001. Al Kadi also accuses the Albanian government to be manipulated by “mafia gangs” after the authorities recently ordered the freezing of additional assets uncovered in the country, including apartments, shops and lands worth $5 million. Since 2001, the Albanian government has sequestrated 40 bank accounts and assets of nearly 20 businesses and properties owned or managed by Yassin Al Kadi.
