The Iraqi Central Criminal Court on Thursday sentenced a convict to death over training ISIS militants.

In a statement, Abdul Sattar al-Bayraqdar, the spokesperson for the High Judiciary Council, said the convict was a soldier in the Iraqi army until ISIS took over Mosul and he became an informant and got promoted to train terrorists.

The statement added that the convict confessed his crimes during the preliminary investigation, pointing out that he took part in battles in Mosul and his duty was to loot Iraqi soldiers’ weapons and equipment.
