French ISIS member Tyler Vilus has been sentenced to 30 years in prison for crimes committed in Syria. He must serve at least 22 years of that sentence before he can apply for early release, a Paris court decided on Friday.
Axar.az reports citing foreign media that Vilus had been arrested at Istanbul airport in the summer of 2015 with a forged Swedish passport and deported to France. He has been in prison since then.
The trial against Vilus concerning crimes committed in Syria between 2013 and 2015 and the Islamist was accused, among other things, of involvement in the murder of two prisoners and the leadership of members of the ISIS. The shooting of the two prisoners - a fighter of the former FSA (Free Syrian Army) and a Syrian regime soldier - was filmed. In the footage published by the ISIS, Vilus can be seen standing a few meters away, hooded and armed.
