Between 2013 and January 2017, the first defendant allegedly led a terrorist group aiming to disrupt the current system, endanger society’s safety, disable constitutional and legal provisions, prevent state institutions from exercising their duties, assault individual freedoms, harm national unity, social peace, and national security. This individual is also accused of founding and leading a cell within the group called “Daesh-Islamic State ISIS,” advocating the legitimacy of opposing and overthrowing the ruler by force, attacking military forces, police, their facilities, and targeting Christians, their assets, places of worship, and public facilities. Terrorism was the means employed by this group to achieve its criminal objectives.
The first defendant also possessed an unlicensed firearm (“shotgun”) intending to use it in activities that threaten public order and indirectly promote a terrorist act, promoting the ideas and beliefs of the terrorist group “Daesh” and calling on his associates to join.
The defendants, from the second to the last, joined this terrorist group, fully aware of its objectives. They underwent security training under its auspices. Defendants from the first to the seventh, and also the twelfth, funded the terrorist group with money and information intending to use it in terrorist crimes. The twelfth defendant possessed an automatic firearm without the proper license, intending to use it in activities threatening public order.
All the defendants collectively agreed to commit a terrorist crime by joining the terrorist group “Daesh” headquartered in Syria, which employs terrorism, military training, and combat methods to achieve its objectives, as reflected in the referral order.
