St. Louis, MO – Mediha Medy Salkicevic, a/k/a Medy Ummuluna, a/k/a Bosna Mexico, 39, was sentenced to 78 months in prison for conspiring to provide material support to terrorists.

According to court documents, on or before February 5, 2015, Salkicevic conspired with others to support the activities of Abdullah Ramo Pazara and others, including a conspiracy to commit outside the United States an act that would constitute the offense of murder or maiming if committed in the special maritime and territorial jurisdiction of the United States.

Salkicevic provided support and resources to Pazara, knowing that he and his co-conspirators would use the support and resources in furtherance of their combat against Syrian government forces and others. The support consisted of money and supplies such as U.S. military uniforms, rifle scopes, combat boots, tactical gear, clothing, firearms accessories, range finders, and other supplies useful to fighters engaged in combat in Syria and elsewhere.

Salkicevic was part of a small group of Bosnian nationals in Illinois, Missouri and New York.

Co-defendants Ramiz Zijad Hodzic, Sedina Unkic Hodzic and Armin Harcevic are awaiting sentencing; Nihad Rosic is awaiting trial; and Jasminka Ramic was sentenced to 36 months in prison.
