“Abdul Haq, also known as Maimaitirning Maimaiti, is the overall leader and commander of the Eastern Turkistan Islamic Party, also known as the Eastern Turkistan Islamic Movement. The Security Council Al-Qaida and Taliban Sanctions Committee added Eastern Turkistan Islamic Party to its Consolidated List of individuals and entities associated with Al-Qaida or the Taliban on 11 September 2002 (listed as “Eastern Turkistan Islamic Movement” under permanent reference number QE.E.88.02.).
As Eastern Turkistan Islamic Party overall leader, Abdul Haq raised funds, recruited terrorists and continued to develop the terrorist organization. In early January 2008, Abdul Haq directed Eastern Turkistan Islamic Party’s military commander to aggressively attack all central cities in inner China, particularly focusing on the eight cities holding the Olympic Games. Under Abdul Haq, trained terrorists planned to sabotage the Olympic Games by conducting terrorist attacks within China before the Olympics began.
Since late 2007, Abdul Haq sent terrorists to the Middle East to raise funds and buy explosive materials for terrorist attacks against Chinese targets outside China. Abdul Hag became the leader of Eastern Turkistan Islamic Party following the death of the organization’s previous leader in October 2003 and has since acted, for or on behalf of the organization. As of 2005, Haq was also a member of Al-Qaida’s Shura Council.”
