Un uomo originario della Virginia è stato condannato ad 11 anni di prigione per il suo sostegno all’Isis e per aver reso false dichiarazioni all’Fbi. Si tratta del ventiseienne, Mahmoud Amin Mohamed Elhassan di Woodbridge a cui è stata impartita la pena di 11 anni di carcere più 10 anni di libertà vigilata per aver tentato di fornire materiale di supporto e risorse all’organizzazione terroristica. L’uomo si è dichiarato colpevole dei fatti che gli sono stati contestati ad ottobre dello scorso anno.

A man from the US state of Virginia was sentenced to eleven years in prison for supporting the Islamic State (IS) terror group (outlawed in Russia) and making false statements to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FB), the US Department of Justice said in a press release on Friday. “Mahmoud Amin Mohamed Elhassan, 26, of Woodbridge, Virginia, was sentenced today to 11 years in prison and 10 years supervised release for attempting to provide material support and resources to the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), a designated foreign terrorist organization, and making false statements to the FBI,” the release stated. Elhassan, who pleaded guilty in October, 2016, conspired with and facilitated the travel of Joseph Hassan Farrokh to give material support to IS. Elhassan drove Farrokh to Richmond, Virginia so he could fly abroad to join the terror group, the release added. Farrokh and Elhassan worked with other individuals whom they believed would help with their travel abroad where the men discussed their travel plans and efforts to avoid law enforcement during numerous meetings, the Justice Department said.
