Syrian man accused of ISIS beheadings charged with crimes against humanity in Hungary

Budapest, Hungary – A Syrian man suspected of Islamic State beheadings and killings has been charged by Hungarian authorities.

On Tuesday, Hungarian prosecutors announced they had charged a 27-year-old Syrian man, only identified as Hassan F., with terrorism and crimes against humanity for perpetrating beheadings and killings in the name of the Islamic State.

The man is accused of beheading a local imam and killing at least 25 more people, including women and children, who refused to join the terrorist organisation in Syria’s western region of Homs, back in 2015.

He’s also suspected of having drawn up a “death list” of all the people who refused to identify with the goals of the Islamic State.

Hassan F. was arrested at Budapest’s Ferenc Liszt International Airport in December last year with forged documents and subsequently detained by Hungarian authorities after his affiliation with the jihadist movement was discovered, in cooperation with Eurojust and Belgian authorities.
