3 defendants sentenced to death over committing terrorist acts in Anbar

Anbar Criminal Court sentenced on Wednesday three defendants to death by hanging over accusations of their belonging to ISIS outlawed group and committing terrorist acts against security forces, civilians in the province.

In a statement, Abdul Sattar Berqdar, a spokesperson for the Supreme Judicial Council of Iraq said that Anbar criminal court has heard the cases of the three defendants accused of belonging to ISIS terrorist group and committing horrific acts.

Berqdar added that those criminals have previously abducted and killed several Iraqi civilians  in Anbar.

“The court ruling was issued pursuant to article 4/1 of the anti-terrorism law,” 
Berqdar pointed out.

Iraq’s anti-terrorism law empowers courts to convict people who are believed to have helped jihadists even if they are not accused of carrying out attacks.
