Bosnian Woman gets 3 yrs for money in support of IS




(MENAFN - Arab Times) A Bosnian immigrant formerly from Illinois was sentenced Tuesday to three years in prison for giving money in support of the Islamic State and al- Qaeda, despite her attorney's plea that she is by no means a terrorist. Jasminka Ramic pleaded guilty in September to conspiring to provide material support to terrorists.

She was sentenced in US District Court in St Louis. "I did make a mistake," Ramic, 43, told Judge Catherine Perry in broken English. "I admit I did something I was not supposed to do." Ramic was among six Bosnian immigrants indicted in February for funneling money and military supplies for use by terrorists in Syria and Iraq.
