A federal jury in Bowling Green, Kentucky, has convicted Mirsad Hariz Adem Ramic, a 34-year-old Kentucky man, on multiple charges related to providing material support to the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS), a designated foreign terrorist organization.

According to court documents and evidence presented during the trial, Ramic coordinated his departure from the United States in 2014 with two co-conspirators.

They traveled to Gaziantep, Turkey, near the Syrian border, before crossing into Syria to join ISIS.

Evidence presented in court showed that Ramic attended an ISIS training camp where he received military-type training. A photograph posted on social media depicted Ramic wearing camouflage clothing and standing in front of a truck equipped with an anti-aircraft gun and the ISIS flag.

The jury found Ramic guilty of the following charges:

  • Providing material support to ISIS
  • Conspiring to provide material support to ISIS
  • Receiving military-type training from ISIS

Ramic, a dual U.S.-Bosnian citizen, faces a maximum prison sentence of 50 years, a fine of $750,000, and a term of supervised release up to life. He has been in federal custody since December 2021 after being deported from Turkey.

The FBI led the investigation into Ramic’s activities, highlighting the agency’s ongoing commitment to combatting terrorism and protecting national security.
