4 ISIS operatives handed life sentences in Iraq
The Central Criminal Court in Baghdad on Sunday (September 23rd) handed life sentences to four convicted of working for the "Islamic State of Iraq and Syria" (ISIS) police in Kirkuk and Ninawa provinces.
"The convicts worked for the so-called ISIS Islamic Police after they swore allegiance to the group and attended a Sharia and military course, as per their own confessions," Iraq’s Supreme Judicial Council spokesman Judge Abdul Sattar Bayraqadar said in statement.
"The convicts received financial reward from the group and wore the group’s Kandahari clothes," he said.
"The court found sufficient evidence to condemn the defendants according to article 4 of the anti-terrorism law No. 13 of 2005 and to hand them life sentences," he said.
