Fort McCoy Afghan refugees charged with sex, domestic abuse crimes

By Fox News and Empower Wisconsin

Two Afghan refugees have been federally indicted for crimes allegedly committed during their stay at Wisconsin’s Fort McCoy.

Bahrullah Noori, a 20-year-old Afghan evacuee, is being charged with attempting to engage in a sexual act with a minor using force against that person along with three other counts of engaging in a sex act with a minor, according to a statement from the Department of Justice.

Noori’s alleged victims are under the age of 16.

Additionally, 32-year-old Mohammad Haroon Imaad is being charged with assaulting his wife by choking and suffocating her on September 17.

The two have been removed from the base and are being held at Dane County Jail.

If convicted, Noori faces a minimum of 30 years in prison  and a maximum of life in prison for the use of force charge alone.

Imaad faces a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison.

The Department of Defense is providing assistance to at least 50,000 Afghans at eight U.S. military installations.

Roughly 12,500 Afghans are being housed at Fort McCoy after being airlifted out of their country last month during President Joe Biden‘s military withdrawal from Afghanistan.

Earlier this week, Empower Wisconsin sought information from Fort McCoy officials on the number of criminal incidents and how many refugees have been removed from the site over safety and security concerns.

Cheryl Phillips, director of public affairs for Task Force McCoy — Operation Allies Welcome, declined to provide specifics.

“In general, Afghan parolees are expected to abide by the laws of the United States, both while in DOD installations and as resettled members of local communities,” Phillips said. “Incidents of criminal behavior on DOD installations are not tolerated and will be referred to law enforcement for appropriate action. Those who violate U.S. law may be put into removal proceedings.”

U.S. Rep. Tom Tiffany (R-Minocqua) on Monday sent a letter to Secretary of State Anthony Blinken and Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas requesting answers on vetting procedures of Afghan refugees and information obtained during the process.

“The Biden administration has repeatedly assured the American people that refugees are being fully vetted and screened, though troubling reports of child sex trafficking, polygamy and infectious disease outbreaks have come to light,” Tiffany said in a statement. “These reports, coupled with previous reports of Afghan nationals with possible connections to terrorist groups, only serve to fuel growing doubts about these assurances.”
