Copenhagen Police have been secretly investigating controversial preacher Abu Ahmed, his Quba mosque in Amager and the charitable organisation Hjælp4Syrien. The investigation is centred on allegations that Ahmed and his associates have encouraged people to travel to Syria to take part in the civil war there and that monies collected under the guise of charitable donations are being used to fund terrorism.
Jens Møller, head of the Copenhagen Police's violent crime division, confirmed that they have been investigating a number of separate cases since March, including posts on the Quba mosque's Facebook page via the educational branch operated by Ahmed, Islamisk Undervisning, that seek financial support for the al-Nusra Front in Syria.
"We can confirm that there is an investigation in progress based on new information, including the support of al-Nusra Front," Møller told Jyllands-Posten newspaper. "We cannot comment further."
