Earlier today, I told you that Hussein Dabaja–who dreamed up and helped pay for the Hezbollah billboard in Windsor, Canada–was involved in used car fraud in Ontario, Canada (it was Free Pioneer’s scoop). His name kept bothering me because I know about a number of cases involving Dabajas in the Detroit area.
Well, I just realized what it was. Hussein Dabaja–and I believe it’s the same one–is the subject of a case I told you about recently. The Michigan Judicial Tenure Commission recently filed a case against Judge William Hultgren of Dearbornistan District Court, alleging that the Judge improperly tried to get a case involving Dabaja assigned to him and taken away from another judge.
It appears that Judge Hultgren was getting pay-offs to try to get the case and handle it favorably. From my previous entry on this:
The Michigan Judicial Tenure Commission filed a complaint Tuesday against a 19th District Court judge for interfering in a case last year already assigned to another judge in the same court.
According to the complaint, Judge William C. Hultgren met with an acquaintance, Ali Beydoun, in October 2006. Beydoun discussed a debt collection case involving Hussein Dabaja, the cousin of Beydoun’s business partner, Frank Dabaja.
The commission accuses Hultgren of several violations of judicial standards, including conduct prejudicial to the administration of justice.
I noted in that entry that the Dabajas and Beydouns are prominent Hezbollah families from Bint Jbeil, South Lebanon and that Hezbollah’s Middle Eastern values have now taken over a Mid-Western Court.
Looks like Hussein Dabaja–if it’s the same guy, and it appears to be–is an international Hezbollah crook. If he is crossing borders and is in the used car trade, it’s a fair conclusion that the money is likely going to finance Hezbollah. That’s a common Hezbollah money-laundering tactic.
