Milan, June 13 - A Milan appeal court on Wednesday
upheld a nine-year prison term for Italy's alleged first foreign
fighter, Maria Giulia 'Fatima' Sergio.
The court also confirmed the other sentences by the court of
first-instance, including a 10-year term for Sergio's Albanian
husband, Aldo Kobuzi.
Sergio was tried in absentia after going to Syria to be a
combatant for the so-called Islamic State (ISIS) extremist group
in 2014.
Her father Sergio Sergio was sentenced to four years in jail
in the first-instance trial.
Sergio's sister was tried separately and sentenced to five
years four months in prison.
The family, all of whom were converts to Islam, were arrested
in July 2015 when prosecutors said they and seven other suspects
had joined ISIS and were on the verge of leaving to fight in
Syria. The mother, Assunta Buonfiglio, died of cardiac arrest
aged 60 in October 2015, on the eve of her release into house
arrest.
