TRINI WOMAN GETS LIFE IN IRAQ FOR ISIS INVOLVEMENT

An Arabic news agency is reporting that a woman from Trinidad and Tobago has been sentenced to life in prison in Iraq for being a member of ISIS.

A report carried by Al-Araby Al-Jadeed (The New Arab) on Tuesday, says the woman was one of many sentenced for the crime.

The news agency reports that a French woman, two Russians and five women from Azerbaijan were also sentenced to life in prison for belonging to the Islamic State group, the latest in a series of Iraqi court rulings since the country’s defeat of the militant group.

The report does not identify the Trinidad and Tobago woman involved.

It says the rulings came just a day after 13 people, including 11 convicted on charges relating to “terrorism” were executed by Iraqi authorities.

It quotes the Justice Ministry in Iraq as the source of its information.

Some 20,000 people were arrested during a years-long offensive by Iraqi forces battling to retake swathes of the country from the Islamic State group.

Many have been sentenced to death but not yet executed.
