A Salzburg student will have to take a seat in front of the juvenile court judge in the regional court today between heavily armed officers from the prison guards. The 16-year-old Chechen has been charged with membership in a terrorist organization. The young man is said to have supported the terrorist “Islamic State” since August 2021. Specifically, he is accused of having distributed terror videos glorifying violence and Islamist praise on online platforms. Another accusation is particularly serious. The boy is also said to have posted instructions for building a cluster bomb on the Internet. The second charge is based on this, based on instructions for committing a terrorist offense. The student from the Puch-Urstein prison is brought to the trial. He has been in custody there since the end of June because of the risk of escaping and committing a crime. The decisive clue is said to have come from the US Federal Police “FBI”. The local constitutional protection officers then took on the boy, who describes himself on the Internet as “Mujahid from the Caucasus”.
