* In 1987, a separate branch of IIRO (known as Sanabel Al-Kheer, or Seeds of Charity) was established for the purpose of generating enough money to cover the costs of IIRO’s international operations in their entirety.
* In 2008, UNICEF signed a “memorandum of understanding” with IIRO’s Saudi Arabian branch to “promote children’s rights, health, equality and education,” in that nation. Chris de Bono, UNICEF”s chief of media, emphasized that “UNICEF does not and will not engage with” IIRO’s Indonesian and Philippine branches, which were widely known to have ties to Al Qaeda and the Taliban. But according to the U.S. Treasury Department, Abd Al Hamid Sulaiman Al-Mujil — the head of IIRO”s Eastern Province branch — had been directly funding the Indonesian and Philippine branches from his office in Saudi Arabia. Moreover, the Treasury Department said that Al-Mujil had previously provided donor funds directly to Al Qaeda.
