While foundation officials inside al-Aqsa Spannmal maintain money it sent to the Palestinian territories was simply for humanitarian aid, the Swedish group is at the center of an investigation tying it to Hamas attacks, The Local said Sunday.
Based in part on pressure from the United States, Swedish prosecutors took action against the foundation branch last fall when they froze several of its financial accounts.
Yet despite the more than $175,000 in frozen funds, a top al-Aqsa Spannmal official said the branch has continued its efforts through other bank accounts.
While such recent transactions have not been investigated to date, the newspaper said prosecutors will soon decide whether to continue their inquiry into the matter or conclude their investigative efforts.
