NARRATIVE SUMMARIES OF REASONS FOR LISTING
TI.H.146.10. NASIRUDDIN HAQQANI
Nasiruddin Haqqani was listed on 20 July 2010 pursuant to paragraph 2 of resolution 1904 (2009) as being associated with Al-Qaida, Usama bin Laden or the Taliban for “participating in the financing, planning, facilitating, preparing, or perpetrating of acts or activities by, in conjunction with, under the name of, on behalf of, or in support of”, “recruiting for” or “otherwise supporting acts or activities of” the Taliban and Al-Qaida (QE.A.4.01 on the Al-Qaida Sanctions List).
The Haqqani Network (TE.H.12.12) is a Taliban-affiliated group of militants that operates from North Waziristan Agency in the Federally Administered Tribal Areas of Pakistan. It has been at the forefront of insurgent activity in Afghanistan, responsible for many high-profile attacks. The Haqqani Network leadership consists of the three oldest sons of Jalaluddin Haqqani (TI.H.40.01), one of whom is Nasiruddin Haqqani.
Nasiruddin Haqqani functions as an emissary for the Haqqani Network and spends much of his time raising money. In 2004, Haqqani traveled to Saudi Arabia with a Taliban associate to raise funds for the Taliban. He also provided funds in 2004 to militants in Afghanistan for the purpose of disrupting the Afghan presidential election. From at least 2005 to 2008, Nasiruddin Haqqani collected funds for the Haqqani Network through various fundraising trips, including during regular travel to the United Arab Emirates in 2007 and through a fundraising trip to another Gulf state in 2008. As of mid-2007, Haqqani reportedly had three main sources of funding: donations from the Gulf region, drug trafficking, and payments from Al-Qaida (QE.A.4.01 on the Al-Qaida Sanctions List). In late 2009, Nasiruddin Haqqani received several hundred thousand dollars from Al-Qaida-associated individuals in the Arabian Peninsula to use for Haqqani Network activities.
His brothers Sirajuddin Jallaloudine Haqqani (TI.H.144.07) and Badruddin Haqqani (TI.H.151.11), and his uncles Mohammad Ibrahim Omari (TI.O.42.01) and Khalil Ahmed Haqqani (TI.H.150.11) are also listed.
