Three former leaders of an Islamic charity that described its mission as helping war orphans, widows and refugees in Muslim nations go on trial this week, accused of duping the US government into getting tax-exempt status by hiding the group's pro-jihad activities. The federal trial of the three former officers of Care International Inc. began Tuesday with jury selection. Libyan-born Emadeddin Muntasser, the founder; Lebanese-born Muhammed Mubayyid, the former treasurer; and Kuwaiti-born Samir Al-Monla, the president of Care from 1996-98, are accused of hiding the group's pro-jihad activities from the Internal Revenue Service, the FBI and the Immigration and Naturalization Service from 1993 to 2003. The men are charged with tax code violations, making false statements and conspiracy to defraud the United States.
