DUSHANBE, December 4. /TASS/. A court in Tajikistan’s southern Khatlon province has sentenced seven local residents to prison terms ranging from 7 to 27 years on charges of involvement in the activities of the Islamic State (IS) terrorist group (outlawed in Russia), the court secretariat told TASS on Friday.
According to the verdict announced by the judge, the defendants are charged under several articles of the country’s Criminal Code, including the establishment of a criminal organization, public appeals for changing the existing political system, promotion of IS ideas and recruitment of citizens for taking part in the fighting in Syria.
"The law enforcement bodies of the province traced the extremist group, among its members were three young people under 18, after the incident with rising the IS flag in the city of Shaartuz in August," a source in Tajikistan’s Interior Ministry told TASS.
