The Naumburg Higher Regional Court has sentenced a former IS fighter to a two-year suspended sentence.

A court spokesman said shortly after the non-public pronouncement of the verdict in Halle an der (Saale) that the 22-year-old is now leaving the court at large.

Nevertheless, the first criminal protection senate found the accused guilty of several charges, it said.

Accordingly, the court saw membership in a foreign terrorist organization and a violation of the Weapons Act and the War Weapons Control Act as proven.

However, the court acquitted the accused of the charge of aiding and abetting a crime against humanity.

Woman owned gun

In 2015, the then 15-year-old suspect joined the terrorist militia "Islamic State" (IS) in Syria, the spokesman said.

There she married an IS fighter, owned a firearm and temporarily had "power over a Kalashnikov" - a weapon that is subject to the War Weapons Control Act.

However, the court did not see sufficient evidence of the alleged aid in keeping a Yazidi slave.

The verdict is not yet legally binding.

The accused can appeal against the verdict within a week.
