AMSTERDAM — The public prosecutor demanded in Amsterdam Court on Monday jails terms of up to 15 years against six terrorist suspects in the so-called Piranha case.
Both Samir A. and his co-accused Mohamed C. are facing 15 years in jail on allegations they were planning a terrorist attack in the Netherlands.
The 20-year-old A. has previously been acquitted of terrorism charges.
The public prosecutor said on Monday five of the six suspects formed a terrorist organisation that was planning to attack the headquarters of the security service AIVD.
All five suspects were also accused of illegal weapon possession. Three of them also tried to recruit Jihad fighters, it was alleged.
The prosecution demanded a 12-year sentence for Nouriddin El F. and 10 years for his ex-wife, Soumaya S. A fifth man faces eight years in prison.
The sixth suspect faces 12 months for forging documents and illegal weapon possession. He has already been released.
