Djerba, Tunisia - A Spanish businessman, Enrique Cerda, the owner of a ceramics company in Valencia, has been sentenced by a Spanish court to five years in prison after he was found guilty of making financial contributions that led to the deadly bombing of the Djerba., Tunisian, Ghriba Synagogue in 2002. The attack claimed the lives of 14 Germans, five Tunisians and two French citizens.

Cerda, 43, was found to have had financial links with terrorists connected to senior al-Qaeda man Khalid Sheikh Mohammad. Mohammad is believed to have given the order to launch the synagogue attack.

In a 27-page judgement, it was found that Cerda had maintained contact with a number of those connected to the bombing and had “not given a logical, coherent or minimally credible explanation” for why so many of them had his telephone number.

Rukhsar, 40, was convicted of sending more than $2 million to al-Qaeda, including $7,200 sent the day before the attack.
