ELGIN, Ill -- A civil lawsuit will be filed Tuesday morning in Cook County Circuit Court alleging the sexual abuse of five victims connected to the Institute of Islamic Education in Northwest Suburban Elgin.
A spokeswoman for the victims' attorney says one victim, a 23-year-old female former employee of the Islamic school and was allegedly fondled by high-profile Muslim leader, Imam Mohammed Adulllah Saleem in 2014.
She quit her job after the final incident.
The other alleged victims are now adults but were minors when the alleged incidents took place. They include three females and one male, possibly former students of the Institute.
The victims' attorney, Steven Denny, will detail the allegations during a press conference in downtown Chicago Tuesday morning.
Thomas Glasgow, the attorney retained by the Institute of Islamic Education to conduct an internal investigation in December tells WGN news tonight: "I have not been presented with any evidence to substantiate this claim even though it's been requested."
