Ramiz Zihad Hodzic, Sedina UnKic Hodzic, Nihad Rosic, Mediha Medy Salkicevic, Armin Harcevic and Jasminka Ramic were arrested and indicted on charges of sending aid in the form of money and equipment to terrorists overseas – including ISIS.
Five of the suspects were Bosnian immigrants who were legally living in the United States. A sixth suspect was arrested outside of the US.
“Today’s charges and arrests underscore our resolve to identify, thwart, and hold accountable individuals within the United States who seek to provide material support to terrorists and terrorist organizations operating in Syria and Iraq,” Assistant Attorney General Carlin said.
“Preventing the provision of supplies, money, and personnel to foreign terrorist organizations like ISIL remains a top priority of the National Security Division and our partners in the law enforcement and intelligence communities,” Carlin said.
