30 ISIS prisoners in Rojava to be taken to France to face trial
France will be flying back 130 of the arrested ISIS members in Rojava in the coming weeks.
According to the BFMTV, some 130 ISIS members under Kurdish control in camps will be transported to France to face trial.
The transportation will be via plane. All gang members will be arrested and put on trial upon entry to France.
Interior Minister Christophe Castaner issued a statement on the matter on Tuesday and said, “All of those who will be brought to France will be handed over to the judiciary. If the courts decide they need to be imprisoned, that is what will happen.”
Castaner added: “Some have been brought back before and have been arrested, we know them. The newcomers will also be under arrest.”
There are some 3.000 ISIS members captured in YPG special units’ operations in northern Syria in Rojava’s prisons. The number rises as the operations continue. Over 800 of the arrestees stand out as citizens of 46 countries, including many Western countries. The Rojava administration has been calling for France, the US, Germany and other countries to take on the task of putting these foreign ISIS members on trial. To date, only Indonesia, Russia, Morocco and the Sudan have officially requested extradition from the Rojava administration for their citizens captured alive by the YPG.
