Dutch court sentences ISIS militant of war crimes in Iraq and Syria

On Tuesday, Dutch judges convicted a Daesh militant of war crimes in Iraq and Syria. They punished him for over seven years and eight months in jail after he shared on the web, pictures in which he was seen posing with the executed dead victims.

Netherlands-conceived Oussama Achraf Akhlafa, 24 years old, was identified responsible for membership in a terror organization. He battled alongside Daesh militants in Raqqa, Syria, and Mosul in Iraq (in between 2014 and 2016). He is convicted for seven years and eight months.

The bench said Akhlafa had clicked a smiling picture alongside the dead body of a man who had been executed by Daesh and posted the image on Facebook. He abused the individual nobility of the dead, consequently breaking the Geneva Convention,” the court stated, about the settlements securing the privileges of war victims.

Khalifa was attempted under universal jurisdiction, which allows war crimes to be contested despite where they were perpetrated, in the initial trial in the Netherlands negotiating with war crimes performed by a Daesh militant.

Another party, the 24-year-old, Reda Nidalha, was convicted to 4-1/2 years in jail for having an association with the militant organization.
