16 November 2007: Earlier this year, a multi-million dollar counterfeit clothing ring based in New York City with its tentacles reaching into various states and internationally was busted by federal authorities after a lengthy investigation. Investigation revealed that at least three of those arrested have definitive ties to the terrorist organization Jamaat ul Fuqra and its front group, the Muslims of the Americas, led by Pakistani terrorist Sheikh Mubarek Ali Gilani. The latest action in this case occurred this week. On Wednesday, 14 November 2007, U.S. District Judge Henry Hudson sentenced Ronald Roundtree, 51, a member of the Muslims of the Americas camp in Virginia to 21 months in federal prison for his role in a multi-state, multi-million dollar counterfeiting ring.
The counterfeiting ring was busted by federal authorities on 7 March 2007, as announced by the United States Attorney’s Office Eastern District of Virginia. In a press release, authorities announced the arrest of eight-(8) individuals in Virginia, West Virginia, Delaware, and New York, as part of a FBI led investigation into trafficking in counterfeit goods and copyright infringement.
According to investigative reports, the counterfeit clothing ring led by Abbas CHOUMAN, 43, of Astoria, NY generated over $7 million in revenue. CHOUMAN was sentenced on Friday, 12 October 2007 to 57 months in federal prison for his role in the criminal copyright infringement scam. In September, HAQQ, PIERRE and HARMON were sentenced to 8, 24, and 27 month prison terms respectively for their roles in the operation; on August 2, Ishoc Uthman Ibn-Abdus SALAAM, was sentenced to 18 months in prison after being found guilty by a federal jury in Richmond of attempted conspiracy to traffic in counterfeit goods. Additionally, Terri SINGLETON, 34, of Beckley, WV, one of ROUNDTREE’s three wives, previously pleaded guilty to conspiracy to traffic in counterfeit goods with ROUNDREE. SINGLETON received two years probation in a separate federal court penalty hearing last month.
