Baghdad’s central criminal court.

Baghdad (IraqiNews.com) The Iraqi criminal court has sentenced a Russian-national terrorist to death over joining Islamic State militant group.

“The Criminal Court sentenced a Russian terrorist to death over joining and fighting with Islamic State group,” Agence France Presse quoted a judicial source as saying.

Baghdad courts, according to the source, “sentenced since beginning of the year more than 300 foreign terrorists to life and death.”

“The same court released on Wednesday two Iraqi women who were accused of joining Islamic State,” the sources added.

Many IS members were detained during liberation battles that freed cities, which were recaptured by the militant group in 2014.

In April, the Central Criminal Court in Baghdad has sentenced five female militants, two of whom are Azeri and three others are from Kyrgyzstan, to death over involvement with Islamic State.

Life sentences were issued against five female convicts, two of whom are Russian, an Azeri one and a French one.

Moreover, the Iraqi Justice Ministry has announced carrying out death sentences against 13 convicts, most of whom are involved in terrorism.

Six Turkish females were sentenced to death over affiliation to Islamic State.

The Baghdad Court sentenced, in March, 13 Turkish women to death over the same charge.

The same court sentenced number of women to life and death over belonging to Islamic State.

Some of them were Azeri, Turkish and Iraqi.

Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi declared victory over the militant group, previously in December, however, observers warn that the group still poses a security threat with sleeper cells.
