May 29, 2016 – On Thursday, May 26, 2016, FBI agents assigned on the terrorism case in San Bernardino has arrested Mariya Chernykh (wife of the terrorist), Tatiana Farook (her sister) and Syed Raheel Farook (her brother-in-law) for the killing of 14 people at the Inland Regional Center last December. This was the latest development on this case investigated by the FBI agents. It can be remembered that this attack has been headed by Syed Rizwan Farook and his wife, Tashfeen Malik where the couple had both died in a gun battle against the law officers several hours after the shooting that they did.
According to the Attorney’s office in Los Angeles, the newly arrested individuals have been charged with conspiracy, fraud, and misuse of visas, perjury and lying. The law enforcers believed that the pursuance of this case is a debt that they must pay to the entire San Bernardino community for the loss that they have undergone.
Meanwhile, the three arrested individuals had pleaded not guilty in Federal Court in Riverside. They have been ordered to turn in their passports and were strictly banned from traveling any parts outside Southern California.
The lawyer of the family expressed that the family had suffered enough humiliation and horrible results from the doings of a single member of the family and he believed that whatever crimes that the terrorist has done should never be attributed to the family.
If found to be guilty, all three will face a five year imprisonment in federal prison while with the additional charges against Chernykh will sanction her with another 25 years.
