Infamous “Norwegian” Islamist sentenced to 12 years in Italy for terror crimes

An Italian court has sentenced Islamist Mulla Krekar to a 12-year prison sentence for terrorist crimes in Italy, Italian broadcaster Rai writes.
Najmuddin Faraj Ahmad, known as Mulla Krekar, was charged with having led a network with connections to the terror group ISIS. In November 2015, he was arrested in Norway on Italian request.
The prosecutor demanded that Krekar should be sentenced to ten years in prison, but the court in the Italian city of Bolzano sentenced him to 12 years in prison. Krekar denies the accusations.
Mulla Krekar is an Iraqi kurd who came to Norway as a quota refugee from Iraq in 1991. He is suspected of having been the leader of the jihadist network Rawti Shax.
Krekar has been on the UN list of terrorists since 2003.
Krekar has previously been sentenced to prison in Norway, among other things for threatening Prime Minister Erna Solberg. Krekar is currently in Norway.
