Muslim terrorist sentenced to 10 years for planning biological attack to massacre 13,500 Germans
A German court sentenced a Tunisian Muslim terrorist to 10 years in prison for planning a biological bomb attack with the deadly poison ricin in order to mass murder people.
Thirty-one-year-old ISIS terrorist Sief Allah H. ordered 3,300 castor seeds, explosives and metal ball bearing on the internet in order to build the biological bomb.
They also bought a hamster to test the potency of the poison and successfully made a small amount of ricin.
When the Muslim terrorist entered the courtroom in the western German city of Dusseldorf, he was all smiles and asked the police officer standing next to him to respect social distancing.
He was found guilty of producing a biological weapon and of planning a serious terror attack.
His 43-year-old Muslim German wife Yasmin stands accused of helping him build the bomb but she is now being tried separately after the court accused her defense lawyers of attempting to spin out the case with a 140-page statement on Thursday. Her trial will resume on April 1.
The couple “wanted to create a climate of fear and uncertainty among the German population,” judge Jan van Lessen said. He added that they had produced enough ricin to potentially kill up to 13,500 people.
Federal prosecutors said the jihadi couple had “for a long time identified with the aims and values of the foreign terrorist organization ISIS”.
They decided in 2017 to detonate an explosive in a large crowd, “to kill and wound the largest possible number of people,” prosecutors said ahead of the trial.
