Prison sentence for Romanian teenager over jihadist propaganda

isisLuigi Constantin Boicea, a Romanian teenager arrested last December for making jihadist propaganda, was sentenced to three years and four months in prison, no parole, according to Romania-Insider.com.

Boicea, 17, pleaded guilty during the trial. However, the decision of the Craiova Court of Appeal is not final and can be further appealed, reports local News.ro.

Luigi Constantin Boicea was first arrested in December 2015 for making jihadist propaganda online. He was soon placed under judicial control but broke the conditions of this measure and was placed under preventive arrest in December last year.

During the judicial control, he was not allowed to access the Internet anymore, but he has broken the obligations he had under the law, “by continuing to access sites used for propaganda and training of future combatants belonging to the terrorist organization Daesh/Islamic State, and by trying to make contact with the leaders or representatives of that terrorist organization to obtain financial and logistical support for committing an act of terrorism,” according to a statement from the Directorate for Organized Crime and Terrorism (DIICOT).
