“The 42-count grand jury indictment alleges Mr Siljander lied about lobbying senators on behalf of the Missouri-based Islamic American Relief Agency (IARA).
“The indictment alleges the charity sent about $130,000 (£66,000) in 2003 and 2004 to accounts in Peshawar, Pakistan, that Gulbuddin Hekmatyar had access to.
“It alleges the charity paid Mr Siljander $50,000 that was stolen from a US development agency.”
“Mr Siljander was a congressman from 1981-1987 and served one year as a US delegate to the United Nations.” Appointed by Ronald Reagan, too.
