Additional information:

Haji Khairullah Haji Sattar Money Exchange (HKHS) is co-owned by Abdul Satar Abdul Manan (TI.A.162.12) and Khairullah Barakzai Khudai Nazar (TI.K.163.12). Satar and Khairullah have jointly operated money exchanges throughout Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Dubai, the United Arab Emirates. Taliban leaders have used HKHS to disseminate money to Taliban shadow governors and commanders and to receive hawala (informal money remittance) transfers for the Taliban.

As of 2011, the Taliban leadership transferred money to Taliban commanders in Afghanistan using HKHS. In late 2011, the HKHS branch in Lashkar Gah, Helmand Province, Afghanistan, was used to send money to the Taliban shadow governor for Helmand Province. In mid-2011, a Taliban commander used an HKHS branch in the Afghanistan-Pakistan border region to fund fighters and operations in Afghanistan. After the Taliban deposited a significant amount of cash monthly with this HKHS branch, Taliban commanders could access the funds from any HKHS branch. Taliban personnel used HKHS in 2010 to transfer money to hawalas in Afghanistan where operational commanders could access the funds. As of late 2009, the manager of the HKHS branch in Lashkar Gah oversaw the movement of Taliban funds through HKHS.
