Neither the U,S, government, which categorizes Tajeddine as a specially designated global terrorist, nor the Moroccan government has released statements regarding the detention.The U.S. Treasury Department's Office of Foreign Assets Control added Tajeddine to its sanctions list in May 2009 . Then in 2010, businesses linked to Tajeddine and his two brothers, Ali and Hussein Tajeddine, were also added. Multiple reports as well as the U.S. sanctions list have previously asserted that the family has consistently diverted sizeable sums – in the millions of dollars – to Hezbollah, which is itself designated a terrorist entity by the U.S. government.
