Groups as diverse as Boko Haram, Al-Shabaab and ‘Battersea Dogs and Cats Home’ are set to engage in a bitter court battle over who gets the £21 million personal fortune left behind by Osama Bin Laden. The Bin Laden will, which was released by the US government, states that the money is to be spent on: ‘Jihad, global terror and a trip to Disneyland for the kids if there’s any left over’.
Geoffrey Cavendish of Islington legal firm Cavendish, Barnes and Melfort is representing Al Qaeda and believes that the terrorist group has a strong claim. ‘Its obvious that Bin Laden wanted the money to go his own organisation and not these jihadi- johnny-come-latelys ISIS’. However, Allen Berkowitz of New York firm Hansen, Berkowittz and Schultz (representing Islamic State) said: ‘Its obvious to anyone that ISIS are best placed to maintain global terror -I mean if you wanted to establish a caliphate and claim religious, political and military authority over Muslims worldwide who you gonna call? ISIS!’
