Syrian Refugee Gets Jail Term in Belgium for Terrorist Attack Plot – Reports

 

BRUSSELS (Sputnik) – The Charleroi municipality court in Belgium has sentenced a Syrian refugee to five years in prison for plotting a terrorist attack in the country, the RTBF reported on Thursday.

 

 

According to the broadcaster, the refugee, a resident of the Belgian city of Mouscron, was arrested in January 2018 after he tested a self-made explosive device at his home.

Belgian law enforcement had been monitoring the Syrian refugee since the CIA informed them about the suspect’s ties with the Daesh* terrorist organization, the broadcaster added.

In 2017, the European Union adopted a new set of rules on how to prevent terrorist attacks. In November 2018, however, 16 EU member states, including Belgium, were sent a formal notice from the European Commission for failing to comply with the EU regulations on terrorism.
