France is set to repatriate 130 suspected ISIS terrorist currently detained in Syria as well as bring charges to them in France according to French Interior Minister Christophe Castaner.
Castaner said “All those who will return to France will be judged in court. If the judge estimates that it will be necessary to incarcerate them, and that will be the usual case, they will be put in jail”. The repatriation is the first step in helping Syria achieve a lasting solution seeing as troops are on the last villages held by the terror group-ISIS
The move makes France the first European country to take back citizens arrested on suspicion of fighting for Daesh. Whilst the US, Lebanon, Russia, Indonesia, and Sudan, have so far agreed to repatriate their nationals, European nations have wrestled with how to handle suspected militants and their families after the terror group lost swathes of territory to the international coalition last year.
