An indictment prepared by a public prosecutor demanding up to 15 years in prison for a Daesh suspect for “being a member of an armed terrorist organization” was accepted by the Adana 11th criminal court.
The indictment stated that the suspect, G.E.I., attended so-called classes to make members adopt the terrorist organization’s ideology and goals, while G.E.I was also found out to have taken part in armed acts in areas controlled by Daesh in Syria.
According to the indictment, G.E.I was using an identity card prepared by Daesh and contributed financially to the terrorist organization.
G.E.I, who denied the accusations, will be tried in the upcoming days for a prison sentence of between seven and 15 years.
Turkey recognized Daesh as a terrorist group in 2013 and since then, the country has been attacked numerous times, including 10 suicide bombings, seven bombings and four armed assaults, which have killed 315 people and injured hundreds more.
In response, Turkey launched military and police operations both inside and outside the country, capturing top Daesh members in counterterrorism efforts at home and in Syria.
