Six Moroccans sentenced to death for their affiliation with “Daesh” by a Somali court

A military court in Somalia has sentenced six Moroccan citizens to death after finding them guilty of belonging to the “Daesh” organization.

The court’s deputy president said the individuals had received training in the Cal Miskat mountains in Somalia’s northeastern region.

He said their conviction was due to their attempt to “destroy their own lives, the lives of the Muslim community, the lives of the Somali people, and to sow chaos in the country.”

Somali media reported that a court spokesperson said the six Moroccans were arrested in the Bante region, and the investigation into them lasted about a month.

He stressed that the court “communicated with the families of the accused, provided them with an interpreter and appointed a lawyer to represent them.”

He added that “after all the legal proceedings, including hearings and presentation of evidence against the defendants, the court rendered these verdicts. But they can appeal within 30 days, otherwise the death penalty by shooting will be carried out.”
