A German court on Tuesday convicted a Tajik man of membership in the Islamic State group for co-founding a cell of the extremist organization in Germany and supporting two planned attacks.
The Duesseldorf state court sentenced 31-year-old Ravsan B., whose full name wasn’t released in keeping with German privacy rules, to seven years in prison.
The court said that the defendant, who lived in the western German city of Wuppertal and has been in custody since March 2019, founded an IS cell along with other suspects of Tajik origin.
It said that he gave another cell member a semi-automatic pistol to shoot a man in Germany who had made critical comments about Islam — an attack that was foiled by authorities.
