Three women in Belgium sentenced to five years in jail for terrorism

The Correctional Court of Antwerp sentenced three women to five years of imprisonment and €6,000 of fine for their participation in a terrorist organization, RTBF informs. 

Women, who are the residents of Antwerp, were absent during their trial. The court ordered to immediately arrest them. 

The convicts together with their children are staying in the refugee camp in Syria now, and expressed wish to return to Belgium.

 Their lawyer hopes that Belgian authorities will make everything possible to return the women from Syria, as they are ready to take full responsibility. 

Belgian mass media inform that two of these women are the widows of two killed IS members. They arrived in Syria 5 years ago with their husbands.
