E.O. 12958: N/A

SUBJECT: SIX SUSPECTS ARRESTED FOR JIHAD RECRUITMENT

1. The National Crime Squad (NR) arrested five men and one
woman in Amsterdam and The Hague on November 6 and 7 for
suspicion of recruitment for Jihad, participating in a
terrorist organization, and obtaining false travel
documents. According to the National Prosecutor's Office,
the arrests are a result of an investigation begun in
November 2005, when the AIVD intelligence service informed
prosecutors that three young Muslims from The Hague were
considering fighting for extremist Islamic ends. The three
were later arrested in Azerbaijan by local authorities and
returned to the Netherlands with help from the Dutch police.

2. The group appears to have been led by Murat , alias
Ibrahim the Turk, alias Abu Jarah, who reportedly is the
main suspect and who was among those arrested. The 36-year
old Turk was previously tried in 2003, together with nine
other suspects, for Jihad recruitment, but was released due
to lack of evidence. The other five suspects arrested this
week were not identified publicly, but the prosecutor's
office stated that some of them may have been involved in
obtaining false travel documents for Iraq. Dutch press
reported that two of the suspects, a 19 year-old woman and
her Islamic husband, were connected to the ""Hofstad"" terror
network. The main Turkish suspect reportedly has been on
the watch list of international intelligence agencies since
2000, when he was spotted in Australia collecting money for
Jihad in Chechnya. He reportedly was in contact with terror
suspect Mamdouh Habib, who served three years in Guantanamo
Bay on suspicion of having ties with Al Qaeda.

3. The NR said that it is continuing its investigation.
