Paris court: Two Algerian ladies facing trial, accused of sending money to ISIS


The trial of two Algerian women began in Paris. They are accused of sending thousands of euros to several members of their family who have gone to Syria to join ISIS.


The two ladies, called Assia and Anissa, aged 36 and 31, respectively, live in France. The first is Algerian, the second holds French nationality. Under the influence of their brother, their parents, six sisters, brothers-in-law and nephews joined Syria to live in the territories occupied by Daesh for years.

At first, Fodil Tahar Aouidate travelled to Syria in 2013, joining the terrorist group ISIS before influencing his children and other members of the family who joined him later on, according to AFP.

Remained in France, Assia and Anissa sent them money. They had withdrawn 30,000 euros from the accounts of their sisters who still received benefits after their departure.

In this aspect, the main charge against both ladies is criminal conspiracy. For their parts, the two suspects denied the accusations.

According to Anissa, the money sent was “for the medical expenses, to get them out of this gear in which they came back”. “Whether it’s me or my sister, we have nothing to do with the Islamic State,” asserts Assia.

No verdict has been pronounced, the trial will continue until Friday …
