A woman still seeking justice for the 2005 murder of her journalist husband in Iraq is suing the FBI for documents related to the investigation so she can go after the Iranian government.
Lisa Ramaci is involved in three pending lawsuits against those she says played a role in her husband Steven Vincent’s death in Basra, Iraq.
Ramaci says she needs the FBI’s classified information on Vincent’s death to aid her in a civil case against Iran, its central bank and its national oil company.
She made a Freedom of Information Act request in September 2016 but says she’s been given the run-around ever since, with the FBI most recently telling her they will turn over two documents she is seeking next May. So she’s suing the FBI in Manhattan federal court to get access to 116 pages out of 3,000.
Vincent, 49, was a freelance journalist who was in Iraq in 2005 when he wrote an article about Iranian-sponsored radicals.
Just a few days after the article came out, on Aug. 2, Vincent was captured, beaten and shot dead by local police.
