Dirhem Abdo Saeed - Terrorism Financier

Dirhem Abdo Saeed - Terrorism Financier

Mr Dirhem Abdo Saeed is a Yemeni member of the highest echelons of British business and establishment connections. He is also the most senior figure that I can identify as having being complicit in financing terrorism, specifically Khalid Sheikh Mohammed’s terrorist cell in 1990s Yemen.

This screen shot from the British-Yemeni Society’s membership page, with my commentary in yellow text, outlines Mr Saeed’s connections to terrorism financing:

Mr Saeed is listed as Managing Director of London company Longulf Trading. In April 1997 directors of Longulf Trading purchased about $3-million woth of printing machinery at a trade show in McCormack Place Exhibition Centre, Chicago, USA. That machinery was to furnish 9/11 terrorist Khalid Sheikh Mohammed’s front company in Yemen.

Mr Saeed is listed as Vice-Chairman of the multi-billion dollar global conglomerate the Hayel Saeed Anam (HSA) Group, the parent company of Longulf Trading and in whose headquarters compound at PO Box 5302 Taiz Yemen Khalid Sheikh Mohammed’s front company was located. I met Khalid Sheikh Mohammed in the HSA Group HQ in September 1997. In 1982 another HSA Group director, Abdul Rahman Hayel Saeed, gave his power of attorney to a known terrorist financier and al Qaeda associate, Mr Ahmed Idris Nasreddin. In 1984 Mr Nasreddin used that power of attorney to establish a financial shell company in Switzerland called the Malaysian Swiss Gulf and African Chamber or MIGA for short. MIGA is a company that the United Nations and the U.S. government said served as a hub of Al Qaeda finance: A terrorist chamber of commerce.

Mr Dirhem Abdo Saeed is listed as the Chairman of Cepac Limited, a group of cardboard packaging printers in Britain, all purchased by the HSA Group and amalgamated into one multi-million pound company. Cepac was incorporated in May 1997. I also believe Cepac Ltd was used by the HSA Group to make an ex gratia payment of $1,000,000 to my former employer shortly after the 9/11 plot was activated in December 1999, a payment clearly visible in my former employer’s online public accounts. 

Mr Saeed was listed as a director of Atlantic Investments from March 1997, a Cayman Island registered financial shell company established by three members of the St Clair Morgan family of another British tax haven, Jersey.

Mr Saeed is also listed as a board member of the Tadhamon International Islamic Bank which has been identified as operating freely in Daesh controlled territory and of providing financial services to the terrorist entity.

In light of my presence in Chicago in April 1997 when Longulf Trading directors purchased one of my employer’s printing machines, and having met Khalid Sheikh Mohammed whilst installing that machine in Yemen, I can confidently say that Mr Dirhem Abdo Saeed was an effective Godfather figure to the group that went on to attack the United States of America on 11 September 2001.
