Prison sentence increased for Czech national who attempted to join ISIS
A Prague appeals court has increased a prison sentence to six years for a Czech man convicted of an attempt to join Islamic State group militants in Syria.
The regional court in the western city of Plzen sentenced Jan Silovsky to three years and three months in prison in February and ordered him to undergo psychiatric treatment.
The 22-year-old Silovsky pleaded guilty and expressed regret but appealed.
Prague’s High Court upheld the ruling and increased the sentence at the prosecution’s request. Tuesday’s verdict is final.
