Demand of 23 years against ‘Balie-Syrian' Aziz A.

Source link

The Public Prosecution Service demands a 23-year prison sentence against Aziz A., also known as the ‘Bar Syrian’. The 35-year-old A. is, among other things, suspected of having been part of a terrorist organization between 2011 and 2014. According to the Public Prosecution Service, A. had a leading position at the terrorist organization Jabhat al-Nusra. The Public Prosecution Service sees sufficient evidence for his involvement to hold him jointly responsible for several deadly attacks.

Initially, A. was also suspected of co-perpetrating nineteen murders “with terrorist intent” in 2012 in Syria, but there is insufficient evidence for this. An acquittal has been requested for this. Aziz suddenly appeared in 2017 during a meeting in De Balie debate center in Amsterdam. He is also the ex-boyfriend of Dutch journalist Ans Boersma, who was deported from Turkey in 2019 because of her connection with the suspect.

Aziz’s brother, 44-year-old Fatah, has been sentenced to ten years in prison. He is also suspected of participating in a terrorist organization. According to the OM, he “benefited” from the high position of his younger brother. According to the Public Prosecution Service, Aziz would have joined the terrorist organization for an ideological motive. In his younger years he was imprisoned for a long time and under horrific conditions in a prison in Syria. After that, he would have wanted to fight against the regime.

A. recognized when visiting debate center De Balie debat

Both Aziz and his brother Fatah strongly deny having ever participated in a terrorist organization. The brothers were arrested in quick succession at the end of 2018, after being bugged by the police for months. The tapped conversations and statements of witnesses form the core of the evidence against the brothers for the Public Prosecution Service.

When A. was present at the screening of a documentary about the Syrian city of Raqqa, in the Amsterdam debate center De Balie, he was recognized by members of the action group Raqqa is Being Slaughtered Silently. They say he is a jihadist fighter. A. himself said earlier that “the matter has been made bigger”. Aziz says he attended the meeting on the advice of the AIVD, for which he would have been an informant.

On Thursday and Friday it will be the lawyers’ turn to plead in the extra secured court at Schiphol. It is not yet clear when the ruling will be.
