March 2002: Al-Qaeda Golden Chain Financiers Revealed      Complete 911 Timeline

      
The "golden chain" list of names.
Authorities in Bosnia, Sarajevo, raid the offices of the Benevolence International Foundation due to suspected funding of al-Qaeda. The raid uncovers a handwritten list of twenty wealthy donors sympathetic to al-Qaeda. The list, referred to as “The Golden Chain,” reveals both the names of the donors, and the names of the recipients. Seven of the payments were made to bin Laden, and at least one donation to him was made by the “bin Laden brothers.” UPI points out that “the discovery of this document in Sarajevo calls into question whether al-Qaeda has received support from one of Osama's scores of wealthy brothers.” Adel Batterjee, a wealth businessman from Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, who is also the founder of both the charity BIF and its predecessor, Lajnatt Al-Birr Al-Islamiah, appears to be mentioned as a recipient three times. Batterjee has been named as a defendant in a 9/11 lawsuit against wealthy Saudis, but he has been missing in Saudi Arabia for over a year by the time this report comes out. When the document was written is not revealed, but it may date from the early 1990s. [UPI, 2/11/03]
People and organizations involved: Adel Batterjee, Osama bin Laden, al-Qaeda, Bosnia, Benevolence International Foundation
