THE money used to fund the March 11 massacre in Madrid was raised from drug deals carried out in Palma and Ibiza just a week before the attacks.
The police investigation into the Madrid attacks and subsequent incidents has discovered that Jamal Ahmidan, alias “El Chino” and the second in command to Serhane ben Abdelmajid, the terrorist commander in charge of the Madrid attacks, travelled to Palma and Ibiza on March 7. Police have managed to trace the movements of El Chino and many of the other bombing suspects by studying their mobile phone cards, and El Chino, made calls on March 7 from the Balearics. The news of the police discovery was published yesterday by a Spanish digital newspaper. Security forces in Palma later confirmed that the prime bomb suspect flew to Palma and Ibiza using a fake Belgian passport and under the name of Yusef Ben Salah. It appears that the unit commander and other members had used the passport at one time or another. It was in Palma and Ibiza that El Chino closed the deals on the purchase of the 30 kilos of hashish which were later traded for the dynamite used in the March 11 attacks. The only Spanish suspect being held in connection with the attacks is the former Asturian miner who supplied the explosives in exchange for the drugs.
El Chino was one of the Islamic terrorists who blew themselves up last Saturday at their apartment in Leganes, Madrid after the fire fight with police. Police have suspected for weeks that Jamal was the cell's “treasurer” and took care of raising the money for the M-11 attacks.
Police raided his cousin's home on the outskirts of Madrid immediately after the bombings and found 53 kilos of hashish and large quantities of other drugs and cash, confirming their suspicions that Jamal was the money man. Police in Majorca and Ibiza are now hunting the drug dealers and perhaps a local contact El Chino may have had.
