Using a number of companies in Denmark it is understood that he and associates have ‘laundered’ at least €8 million through 24 different businesses and used these funds to support terrorist groups including Daesh.

Working in association with the Danish intelligence office, the Moroccan police and Europol, the Guardia Civil alleges that this person has assisted 10 individuals including Danes, Germans and Spaniards to join up with the terrorist groups in different areas of conflict

Investigations into possible associates are still ongoing according to the Spanish Ministry of the Interior.
