Sentence in terror scheme

October 31, 2008|By TRICIA BISHOP

Haniffa bin Osman, a 57-year-old Singapore man, was sentenced to three years in federal prison for money laundering and conspiring to provide material support to a terrorist organization operating within Sri Lanka, the Maryland U.S. attorneys office said yesterday.

Osman's scheme, which included plans to export weapons - including grenade launchers and surface-to-air missiles - was unraveled by undercover law enforcement agents posing as weapons dealers, prosecutors said.
