  • Saudi court convicts 38 for financing Terrorism and Takfir

Al-Ekhbariya television reported on Tuesday that a Saudi court convicted 38 people of financing terrorism, handing out sentences ranging from 30 months to 25 years, state-run.

Knowingly that one of those sentenced established a terrorist organization while in prison and others had committed takfir, labelling followers as non-believers, against the Saudi government, clerics and security forces.

Furthermore, the TV channel did not provide the nationalities or names of those convicted out of the 41 people in total on trial, nor did it mention when they were arrested.

It said the specialized criminal court in Riyadh, which was set up to try terrorism cases, sentenced one man to 25 years, another to 20 years and a third to 15 years. The rest received sentences ranging from 2-1/2 years to 12-1/2 years.

It’s noteworthy that the convictions can be appealed.
