Khair Mundos is a fugitive wanted for arranging the transfer of funds from the al-Qaida terrorist group to be used in bombings and other criminal acts throughout the island of Mindanao in the Philippines. He is a key leader and financier of the Philippines-based Abu Sayyaf Group.
He was arrested in May 2004 on money laundering charges connected with terrorist activities. In February 2007, Mundos escaped from a Kidapawan Provincial Jail. Because of his leadership position in the Abu Sayyaf Group, whose terrorist attacks have resulted in the deaths of U.S. and Filipino citizens, U.S. authorities consider Mundos to be a threat to U.S. and Filipino citizens and interests. Mundos is believed to be hiding in southern Mindanao.
The Rewards for Justice Program is offering a reward of up to $500,000 for information leading to Mundos’s arrest or conviction.
The U.S. guarantees that all credible reports will be investigated and the identity of all informants will be kept confidential. If appropriate, the U.S. is prepared to protect informants by relocating them. If you have information on this man, contact the nearest U.S. Embassy or Consulate and the tip line at www.rewardsforjustice.net or e-mail information to RFJ@state.gov.
