“Jihadi John,” the Islamic State group terrorist involved in the execution of multiple Western prisoners, still has access to his British bank account.
The U.K. government’s independent investigator found that only six British jihadists have had their bank accounts frozen out of an estimated 600 fighting with the Islamic State group, The Telegraph reported Saturday.
“The figures for assets frozen are remarkably low,” said David Anderson, a high ranking Queen’s Counsel official and the U.K. government’s independent investigator for terrorism legislation.
Mohammed Emwazi, nicknamed ‘Jihadi John,’ is a former British citizen serving as the terrorist group’s executioner, appearing in videos that have depicted the violent beheadings of American and Japanese citizens.
But the terrorist wasn’t among the list of bank accounts that’s been frozen by British officials.
