A Syrian is said to have been involved in repairing vehicles on behalf of the so-called Islamic state. And in Dresden, too, the officials were on duty in the war on terror.
On Tuesday, the State Criminal Police Office of Saxony searched the apartment of a suspected IS supporter in Freiberg. The 55-year-old Syrian had carried out vehicle repairs for the terrorist organization several times between 2013 and 2015, according to the Dresden Prosecutor General’s Office. The man is thus charged with supporting a terrorist organization abroad.
Independent of this, an apartment in Dresden was also searched on Tuesday. There, a 19-year-old Somali is suspected of having participated in a training camp of the militant-Islamist al-Shabab militia in East Africa in 2016. Officials accuse the man of membership in a terrorist organization.
A total of 15 officers of the Saxony State Criminal Police Office were involved in the search of the two apartments. Several mobile phones were seized as evidence. These are now to be investigated.
