Washington: Iraqi refugee skips out of country days before rape trial
Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 28, 2016
Here we go again….
Disgusting news (that doesn’t fit the Left’s narrative!) from World Net Daily‘s Leo Hohmann:
A 49-year-old Iraqi refugee who came to the U.S. in 2003 has fled the country 48 hours before he was to stand trial in Kennewick, Washington, for allegedly raping a grade-school girl.
Khalid Fathey reportedly boarded a flight for Dubai in the United Arab Emirates. Authorities issued a nationwide arrest warrant this week after he failed to show at his Benton County Superior Court trial, a local newspaper reported.
The U.S. Marshals Service then discovered that Fathey left Seattle on July 23 on a plane bound for Dubai, Anita Petra, deputy county prosecutor, told the Tri-Cities Herald.
She did not know if it was a one-way or round trip ticket. Either way, the cost would have been substantial but authorities haven’t said if they believe someone helped him get away.
Fathey was set free on a personal recognizance bond after he was charged with the sex crimes in May 2015. Having been in the country since 2003 he would have at least had a green card, which affords permanent resident status, but likely had full U.S. citizenship. Refugees qualify for full citizenship after five years.
Go here for the whole sordid tale. And, learn more about the massive number of Iraqis we have been admitting to the US.
Don’t hold your breath that this will ever make the national news.
