You can't make this story up!
A 39-year-old Syrian refugee known only as Hasan has been sentenced to two years in prison for trying to get ISIS to transfer him 180,000 euros.
According to Reuters, a judge in the district court in the south-western city of Saarbruecken ruled that the man used the false pretence that he would carry out attacks in Germany for ISIS using explosives.
The court even rejected the claim that he was guilty of a more serious crime – planning to carry out the attack. The money, however, was never transferred to him.
So, because they believe there was no intent to carry out an attack, the court has essentially granted legal protection to ISIS. What would have happened if he was actually sent money? Would it have been sent back to the jihadists?
