A U.S. nonprofit that facilitates the rescue of Afghans from Taliban rule claims it was defrauded of hundreds of thousands of dollars by companies that promised but failed to relocate nearly 200 people awaiting help in Pakistan, according to a new lawsuit filed in federal court in South Florida.


The lawsuit, brought by a group called Save Our Allies, names three companies and three individuals, including Matthew Nelson, a former Marine Corps officer who briefly served on the nonprofit’s board of directors.

The companies are Ravenswood Group, an advising firm based in Florida; Sama Global, an investment firm in Qatar; and City Gate Trading and Contracting Company, which furnishes housing in Qatar. The other individuals are Gregory Gustin, the chief executive officer at Ravenswood, and Shahzada Khurram, who is listed as holding senior positions at Ravenswood and Sama Global.
