The Swedish government has revoked the citizenship and passport of the former head of the Swedish Muslim School, Abdirizak Waberi, who is currently running for the presidency of Somalia and parliament and is the chairman of the National Unity Party, led by Abdirahman Baadiyow.
Abdirizak Waberi has been accused of embezzling millions of Swedish kronor, which has been invested in political and Islamist organizations inside Somalia.
Abdirizak, a former member of the Swedish parliament and head of the Muslim Römosse School in Gothenburg, was found guilty of embezzling 13 million Swedish kronor (1.5 million US dollars).
According to Aftonbladet, the Muslim Römosse School in Gothenburg has now closed its doors due to misappropriation of funds for the development of the school.
Investigations of Abdirizak Waberi’s financial activities revealed that he had deposited cash with various people in Somalia.
Abdirizak Waberi denied that he had embezzled the money, and described the allegations as being pushed back by vested interests.
