A New York man has been found guilty of conspiracy and providing material support to ISIS.
Dilkhayot Kasimov, 31, a citizen of Uzbekistan and resident of Brooklyn, was accused of working to support ISIS, including by collecting and giving money to another individual to fund his travel to join the group. He faces up to 30 years in prison.
“As found by the jury, Kasimov was part of a conspiracy in which he willingly and eagerly sought to help fund a foreign fighter’s travel and expenses in Syria to wage violent jihad,” stated United States Attorney Richard P. Donoghue for the Eastern District of New York. “The Department of Justice and our law enforcement partners will continue working relentlessly to protect our country from those who would provide support of any kind to terrorists seeking to harm the United States and its allies.”
