DAMASCUS, SYRIA (1:10 P.M.) – A former ‘Free Syrian Army’ rebel fighter turned refugee has been sentenced to life in jail in the Austrian city of Innsbruck. The regional court found the man guilty of having murdered 20 captured Syrian Army soldiers in Syria’s central province of Homs.

The 27-year-old man had been boasting about his deeds to fellow asylum seekers. He was arrested last year when another Syrian national reported him to authorities. Killing prisoners of war is prohibited under the Geneva Convention.

After previously admitting in writing to the killings, the asylum seeker withdrew his confession in court. However, he was found guilty nonetheless by a five to three vote.

The court asserted that the executions of the “wounded and defenseless” government troops took place in 2013 and 2014 in the city of Homs and its surroundings.

According to Austrian Law, the man would have to spend at least 15 years in jail. It was unclear whether the man would seek to appeal the sentence.

In a similar case in Germany, a former rebel fighter stands accused of having murdered 36 government soldiers and policemen.

It would have been better to sentence him 20 times to life in jail so we wouldn’t see him any more free. But its a right step from the Austrian court to handle those “refugees” as what they are: Fled terrorists or their belongings.

There is no such accumulations in the EU, we’re not USA, we don’t practise overkill in courts.
Nevertheless, he can appeal but appeal can make things worst i.e. with a 30 years minimal load. Now he can also end never going out again : it’ll depend a LOT on his behaviour in jail and BTW, if ever psychiatrists consider him a danger, he may end transferred into a high security lunatic asylum, as it is made with serial-killers and with 20 murders, you’re a serial killer 😉

Thanks for admitting that western regimes, which claim to be abiding by “human rights” while demonizing and pointing fingers at president Assad, have institutionalized the deliberate tolerating of homosexual rape as a standard procedure of punishment for isolated prisoners.

At French president elect Macron’s inaugural speech in front of the masonic Louvre pyramid, dozens of FSA flags could be seen. They were mainly being woven by citizens of Maghrebine origins, most of whom are known to have been deeply brainwashed by the endless stream of anti-Syrian and pro-wahhabi propaganda generated by mainstream media linked to the French regime and its ruling oligarchy. Now, when you account for the fact that people had to pass three different, highly intrusive security checks before gaining access to the Louvre’s plaza that night, when you know that people weren’t even allowed to bring… Read more »

Actually, the Louvre’s Pyramid is a double one as there is an inverse one under ground level. Thus, it’s not a masonic but a sexual symbol for both man and woman together. François Mitterrand who ordered the Pyramid wasn’t known to have great relations with the French Masonry which BTW is pretty different from anglo-saxon ones : our free masons are atheists. Ieoh Ming Pei is not related too. You’d be pretty surprised by watching French MSM : they’re mostly don’t giving a f**k about what’s happening into Syria. Strangely, F.Hollande stopped any support to FSA soon after he came… Read more »

Pyramids are of course one of the main symbols used by freemasonry, and so are the two inverted pyramids: masonry’s infamous Square and Compass sign is nothing but that. Masonry, whether of Scottish or other rites, is known for borrowing symbols from a wide range of creeds, from the fertility cults of pagan belief systems to the Jewish kabbalah. So if some of these elements had been in use by others before, it does not necessarily imply that they are not part of masonic symbols. But that’s basic knowledge now, isn’t it. Anyone can verify this very easily. Former French… Read more »

A senseless and unfair treatment. Such animals ought to be deported to Damascus immediately to stand trial in Syria.

No deportations to countries if one may face death penalty.
EU stands for human rights and against death penalty so no way it’ll happen.

Ideally, they should have sent him back home instead of sending him to jail. That would have been more fun to watch, being handed over to SAA.

Well done. A clear message to all jackals like him : they’re not welcomed in the EU, well, at least, they are, but in our jails. Actually, our s*x pervs with very long jail time to do reclaim young males to a*s-rape ’em or they are threatening jail-intifada or even jailbreaks. If ever this cockroach ends freed, he’ll be well prepared to become a transvestite prostitute and will surely lead the gay-pride, he may even apply for Guiness book of records : his a**s will be so dilated that he’ll be able to compete for the highest number of partners… Read more »

” Now be sure that the wardens will also add pork in all his food just to have him eating ‘haram’. ” That would actually make them disgusting racist low-lives. Which begs the question whether the quoted user is being apologetic towards islamophobia, as per his habit. By his own logic, would the user welcome religious Jews who landed in prison, to be fed pork too? Something tells me he wouldn’t. Alas, excessive, all too blatant chutzpah does not work on intelligent readers of this web site. Also, wardens would actually ridicule themselves doing such a thing, as well as… Read more »

You seem to know few about prisons. I know personally a warden, they really act pretty nasty sometimes. Many are into far right parties BTW, especially in Austria where far right won several elections in the past. Like it or not, it’s what is pretty likely to happen and this idiot will surely end sodomised by other detained. For some other points : better stop reading conspiracy websites until you decide to verify and recoup what they claim. In the end, you’ll even give up reading these : at best, 1% ends being true, thus, 99% bullshit is what you… Read more »

It’s not about whether we like it or not, nor about how influential far right xenophobes are in Austria,. It’s about the fact that islamophobia is wrong, in the same way as judeophobia is. One cannot have it both ways. The above user should try a little moral consistency. It’s a really virtuous exercice and increases one’s credibility greatly!
