Illinois woman accused of supplying terrorists appears in court
ST. LOUIS (AP) – An Illinois woman who federal investigators say helped five other Bosnian immigrants funnel money and military supplies to terror groups in Iraq and Syria has made her first court appearance in Missouri after being arrested in Germany.
Forty-two-year-old Jasminka Ramic of Rockford, Illinois, was given a copy of the indictment against her during a five-minute hearing Thursday in St. Louis. Her detention hearing is scheduled for Monday.
Ramic and five co-defendants were indicted last month on charges of conspiracy and providing material support and resources to terrorists.
One co-defendant lives in Illinois, three in Missouri and one has resided in New York.
Ramic’s court-appointed attorney, J. Christian Goeke, told The Associated Press after Ramic’s court appearance he hadn’t yet had a chance to review the indictment and could not comment.
