ISIS member released despite admission he decapitated people
A Belgian former Islamic State fighter was released from detention by a judge despite confessing he decapitated an “enemy of Allah.”
Iliass Khayari, 25, returned home to Brussels in 2013 after a short career as an ISIS fighter in Syria. He was sentenced to five years in prison last week for participating in terrorist activities.
Police wiretapped Khayari’s phone shortly after he returned to Belgium in May, 2013. He confessed to brutally decapitating a Syrian soldier during a conversation with a friend.
“It was an enemy of Allah, that’s why I cut his head off,” Khayari said in the recording, according to Belgian newspaper Het Laatse Nieuws.
The prosecutor advised that Khayari should remain in detention as he poses a threat to the public. The judge couldn’t justify this assessment and decided to release Khayari until the appeals process is finalized, which could take several months.
