Ex-inmate helps free Rezko from jail

| | Comments (1) | TrackBacks (0)


Mystery still surrounds Aiham Alsammarae, a onetime Iraqi official who fled from an Iraqi jail in 2006 after he was convicted on corruption charges there. Alsammarae lives in Oak Brook. Alsammarae and Rezko's friendship goes back decades. It became most evident last week, when court records showed that Alsammarae put up more than one-third of the property value to secure Rezko's bond.
Documents obtained by the Sun-Times raise questions over Alsammarae's status as a fugitive. They indicate that his conviction was vacated but he may be retried. However, an Interpol warrant remains active against Alsammarae. Alsammarae has maintained his innocence and says the charges against him are false.
