Death sentences against six convicts involved in terrorism carried out: Ministry

Baghdad’s central criminal court.

Baghdad ( The Iraqi Justice Ministry has carried out death sentences against six convicts involved in terrorism charges.

A statement by the ministry on Wednesday said “death sentences were carried out against six convicts in accordance with counter-terrorism law.”

The ministry highlighted working on implementing the law.

Iraqi courts have recently issued death sentences against convicts involved in explosions and killing of civilians and security personnel that have occurred over the past few years.

On Sunday, the Central Criminal Court in Baghdad sentenced a man to death as he was caught supplying the Islamic State with explosive materials.

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

Two Islamic State members were sentenced, in September, to death over killing 12 people in Anbar.

In December, the Iraqi Prime Minister Haidar al-Abadi announced gaining control on all the territories that were captured by Islamic State, since 2014. However, Security reports indicate that the militant group still poses threat against stability in the country. The group still has dormant cells, through which it carries out attacks, across Iraq like it used to do before 2014.
