Foreign Fighter Sentence

by | Jul 4, 2018

Mehmet Biber was charged as a ‘Foreign Fighter’ in Syria despite never fighting. He did join an armed group in Syria opposed to President Assad but it was part of the local opposition, not a terrorist group.  It was not ISIS or Al Nusra.  Facing a penalty of imprisonment for 20 years,  Biber was sentenced to 2.5 years non- parole.  Mark Davis speaks after sentence.
