A bit more coming out on this story now, see below:
A point of interest, the headline reads: "Former CERN nuclear scientist convicted of terror plot gets five years in jail"
However, within the article it says: "The trial of Hicheur, who was charged with criminal association as part of a terrorist enterprise,"
Surely "convicted of a terror plot" and being charged with "criminal association" are different things?
However, this is a bit puzzling: "Prosecutors focused on emails between Hicheur and an alleged al-Qaeda contact"
So prosecutors based a conviction on emails between the convicted and an ALLEGED contact within an organisation that doesn't exist! From evidence,
either this contact was or was not part of a ficticious organisation?
Someone please explain
