Place of Birth: Rawah, Iraq;
Omar Ameen, is an Iraqi national, wanted on a murder charge in Iraq. Ameen settled in Sacramento as a purported refugee and attempted to gain legal status in the United States.
An arrest warrant charging Ameen with the 2014 murder of an Iraqi police officer was issued on May 16, by a judge of the Baghdad Federal Al-Karkh Inquiry Court.
On June 21, 2014, Ameen entered the town with a caravan of Islamic State vehicles and drove to the house of the victim, who had served as an officer in the Rawah Police Department.
On the evening of June 22, 2014, after the caravan arrived at the victim’s house, Ameen and other members of the convoy allegedly opened fire on the victim. Ameen then allegedly fired his weapon at the victim while the victim was on the ground, killing him.
Ameen, originally of Rawah, in the Anbar province of Iraq, fled Iraq following the alleged murder, and later settled in Sacramento as a purported refugee.
It is alleged that Ameen’s family supported and assisted the installation of al-Qaeda in Iraq (AQI) in Rawah, and that Ameen was a member of AQI and ISIS.
It is also alleged that he participated in various activities in support of those terrorist organizations, including helping to plant improvised explosive devices, and committing the murder that is the subject of the extradition request.
Ameen concealed his membership in those terrorist groups when he applied for refugee status, and later when he applied for a green card in the United States.
