Two Iraqi citizens were detained at the request of the prosecutor’s office for organized crime and corruption. They were accused of sending funds to the Islamic State (ISIS).

The Iraqis had lived in Poland for a long time and conducted their operations mainly in Lower Silesia and Wrocław. They also often travelled abroad in Europe.

The operation to stop the Iraqis was carried out in Warsaw by ABW officers. The men were detained due to a bank transfer they made to an account identified as one belonging to ISIS.

According to information obtained by RMF.FM radio journalists, the men did not pose a direct threat other than financing ISIS.
