firm release: our representation of rezai karim

Wildes & Weinberg Immigration Law Offices FIRM RELEASE:

Since 2012 Managing Partner Michael Wildes has represented Mr. Rezai Karim, a young professional and college graduate who only a few short weeks ago accepted a computer engineering position and moved to Roanoke, VA for a better life. Rezai Karim was viciously attacked and stabbed on the evening of Saturday, August 20, 2016 as he was entered his apartment with his girlfriend, allegedly by a suspected ISIS terrorist Wasil Farooqui. It appears that Wasil Farooqui had been on the FBI‘s radar for several months and he is believed to be self-radicalized. CBS News reported that Farooqui had tried to go to Syria earlier this year, but only got as far as Europe. Witnesses told police that Farooqui was yelling “Allah Akbar” and law enforcement sources told CBS News the FBI is investigating whether the knife attack was possibly inspired by ISIS.

According to Michael Wildes: 

 “My client Rezai Karim and his girlfriend are cooperating with the FBI and local Police Investigators while recovering from their wounds suffered in the attack. We ask that for their privacy to be respected”.
