A Danish girl has been sentenced to a few years in jail for travelling to Syria to advertise the Islamic State (IS) group.
The 35-year-old was discovered responsible of “selling terrorist actions” and “getting into and residing in a battle zone”.
Prosecutors mentioned that she had “facilitated the actions of IS, specifically by performing because the housewife and spouse of an energetic member of the terrorist organisation”.
“Even you probably have not actively participated within the combating, we are saying that you could help a terrorist organisation by purchasing in its supermarkets, by taking good care of the kids, by being a housewife,” prosecutor Trine Schjødt Fogh mentioned.
The Danish courtroom heard how she had arrived in Syria eight years in the past and had stayed within the provinces of Raqqa and Deir Ezzor.
“The previous few years have been troublesome for her, first within the caliphate, then in a jail camp and now in jail,” defence lawyer Mette Gith Stage instructed the Ritzau information company.
“She misses her kids terribly and is keen for the case to finish in order that she and the kids can transfer on.”
In October 2021, Denmark repatriated three girls and 14 kids from the Kurdish-controlled Roj camp in north-eastern Syria in a joint operation with Germany.
The three girls had been arrested on arrival in Denmark and have been detained ever since.
