One Response to US Department of Justice enters into secret settlement with Islamic Investment Company of the Gulf (IICG)

  1. When Treasury fines a bank for BSA or other regulatory violations, they trumpet it from the rooftops. Guess it’s different rules for Islamic financial institutions, who get a settlement and it all gets hushed up.

    We must stay on the look out for any news about “Dar al-Maal al-Islami” Trust (DMI), which, if I’m not mistaken, means “House of Islamic Money.”
