Saida El Mimouni is a woman from Antwerp affiliated with the Islamic State (IS) in Syria risks a five-year prison sentence and being stripped of her Belgian nationality.
She was married to a member of the now-disbanded terrorist cell Sharia4Belgium, a man named Rachid Iba whom she followed after he left for Syria.
El Mimouni was also sentenced to ten years in prison, in a trial where an overwhelming majority of the defendants were tried and sentenced in absentia, with only seven present during the proceedings.
According to the federal public prosecutor, El Mimouni left for Syria with her children in March 2013 to join her husband, who had already travelled there to join the ranks of the Islamic State.
El Mimouni returned to Belgium in 2014 and gave birth to a second child in January 2015, before heading back to Syria that summer, passing through Poland and Ukraine, according to the outlet.
Documents recently found in Syria showed that, after her husband’s death, El Mimouni had married an Islamic State fighter of Tunisian nationality in May 2017.
Federal prosecutors demanded the court give a five-year prison sentenced to El Mimouni, and that she be fined €8,000 as well as stripped of her Belgian nationality.
