Dutch would-be jihadi’s jail term increased on appeal

GavelA would-be Dutch jihadi known as Omar H has had his one year jail sentence extended to 18 months on appeal.

H was found guilty of preparing to launch a terrorist attack and incitement after the court was told he had looked online for bomb-making instructions and was preparing to travel to Syria.

Last October H was not convicted of terrorism.

The public prosecution department had called for a three year jail term.
