ISIS Militant Jihadi John May Still Have Bank Account In U.K. – And Be Withdrawing Money From It

The British ISIS militant known as “Jihadi John” may still have access to a U.K. bank account, claims the publication The Independent.  The 26-year-old Londoner, whose real name is Mohammed Emwazi, has appeared in several propaganda videos showing the brutal murders of international hostages.

However, despite the atrocities he has committed, any assets held by Emwazi have not been frozen by the Treasury, the Sunday Telegraph reported.

The newspaper referenced a report by David Anderson QC, which looked into the operation of the “Terrorist Asset-Freezing etc. Act 2010 (Tafa)” in the year to September 2014.

The act gives the Treasury the power to freeze the assets of individuals and groups who are thought to be involved in terrorism, whether in the U.K. or abroad – even if they have not been charged with or convicted of an offense.

Only 25 individuals are currently affected by the law – and Emwazi is not among them, claims The Independent.

The Times reports that she poses as a fictional 17-year-old ‘Aisha’ and told a reporter that she would ‘never want for money again’ and live a good life if she made the journey to Syria to become a jihadi bride.
