Screen Shot 2016-06-17 at 6.39.04 PMSounds like Omar’s family was a network of terrorists. What do you think?

The brother-in-law of Orlando terrorist Omar Mateen has refused to deny that he knew about the shooter’s plans to commit a massacre at Pulse nightclub.

When asked directly by whether he knew of Mateen’s intentions Mustafa Abasin, 43, refused to comment, saying he could not talk.

Standing at the front door of the Port St Lucie home, which he shares with wife Sabrina, 31, Abasin similarly refused to respond to questions regarding the land deal between himself and Mateen, 29, that saw the terrorist transfer the deeds to his Fort Pierce for just $100.

The property is worth an estimated $165,000.

The bizarre real estate transaction took place one month before Mateen’s June 12 attack that left 49 dead and 53 wounded.

Asked by, if he could explain why Mateen sold him his home for just $100 he said he could not comment.

When put it to him that there was a suggestion that this meant he knew about his plans for the shooting ahead of time and asked, ‘Did you know?’

He said, ‘I will not comment, I will not comment.’

When asked if he had been questioned by the FBI and if he was helping them with their investigation he refused to comment.

On April 5, Mateen signed a Quit Claim Deed transferring his ownership in a Port St. Lucie residence to his sister and brother-in-law, Mustafa and Sabrina Abasin. They paid him $100 for the home according to city records.

One of the individuals who signed off as a witness to this sudden transfer was Noor Salman, Mateen’s wife. The other witness was Mateen’s sister Miriam ‘Mary’ Seddique.

Three weeks after signing his deed over to his brother-in-law, Mateen took a trip to Walt Disney World to scout out possible sites for the attack according to law enforcement officials.

He also brought Salman with him for that trip.

The Port St. Lucie home that Mateen, 29, gave to the Abasins is worth approximately $165,000, and he owns a third of the property. So it is unclear why Mateen would be willing to sign it over so suddenly and for no money.

It is a 1,740-square-foot residence with three bedrooms and two bathrooms on 10,000 square feet of land.

Furthermore, mortgage records show that in September 2013, less than three years ago, Mateen borrowed $76,000 from Seacoast National Bank to purchase the home along with two other family members.

His father Seddique and sister Mary also signed as borrowers.

Salman, 30, was named in the Mortgage as well but only as being the wife to Mateen, and she did not sign the document.

The Warranty Deed to the home was also signed by Mateen, his father Seddique and his sister Miriam. Salman’s name is not on any of the documents.
