September 17, 2003: Spain Charges Darkazanli, 34 Others with Involvement in 9/11 Plot      Complete 911 Timeline

       A Spanish judge issues an indictment against Mamoun Darkazanli and 34 others, alleging that they belonged to or supported the al-Qaeda cell in Madrid, which assisted the 9/11 hijackers in planning the attack. Darkazanli's name appears 177 times in the 690-page indictment. He is accused of acting as bin Laden's “financier in Europe.” “The list of those with whom Darkazanli has done business or otherwise exchanged money reads like a Who's Who of al-Qaeda: Wadih El-Hage, bin Laden's one-time personal secretary; Seedi al-Tayyib, the husband of bin Laden's niece and, before 9/11, al-Qaeda's chief financial officer; and Mustafa Setmariam Nasr, the head of a training camp for al-Qaeda in Afghanistan who journeyed to Hamburg to visit Darkazanli in 1996.” [Chicago Tribune, 10/5/03] The CIA had been monitoring Darkazanli sometime before December 1999 and had tried to convince Germany to “turn” him into an al-Qaeda informant. However, the CIA refused Germany's request to share information regarding Darkazanli's terrorist ties in the spring of 2000 (see Spring 2000). [Chicago Tribune, 11/17/02]
