Romania expels ‘cowboy’ jihadists

Two foreigners suspected of planning terrors attacks have been arrested and then expelled by the Romanian authorities, the Romanian home intelligence service SRI said on May 24 2013.

According to the expulsion file submitted to Bucharest’s Court of Appeals, the two suspects are Salid Harba, a Lebanese national born in Syria, and Abdul Razak Harba, an Iraqi citizen. The two owned several livestock farms in Romania and dealt in selling meat. They were also associated in two companies based in the Braila County, south-east Romania.

“Two foreign nationals have been declared personae non-grate or the next 15 years because they have given financial and propagandistic support to Jihad oriented groups acting in the Middle East” according to SRI.
