British Court Clears Way to Seize Home Used in Terror Financing

Fund the Taliban, lose your home:

Three judges said the trial of Munir Farooqi, from Longsight, Manchester, and two other men had been fair.

The Court of Appeal decision paves the way for the first ever seizure of a family home as a terrorist asset....

His trial heard that he had used the family's large Victorian home to hold meetings to radicalise recruits. One of Farooqi's sons was acquitted at trial of charges relating to his father's actions.

Following his conviction, Greater Manchester Police and the Crown Prosecution Service said they would seek to take the property because it had been used for a terrorist purpose and had been "in the possession or control" of Farooqi at the time he committed the offences.

Too bad Rachel Corrie won't be there to lay in front of the wrecking ball.

What, too soon?
