theguardian.com – French teen gets suspended jail sentence for naming Wi-Fi network after Isis Court convicts teenager who named domestic network ‘Daesh21’ after neighbour reported it to police – Agence France Presse

A French court has handed a three-month suspended jail sentence to a teenager who named his domestic Wi-Fi network after the Islamic State group, his lawyer said on Friday.

“There was no sympathy for terrorism! There was only the word ‘Daesh21’,” said lawyer Karima Manhouli, noting he would appeal his client’s criminal conviction.

Daesh is a widely-used Arabic acronym for Isis.

“It was a stupid act by a young man of 18 who can’t explain why he did it,” he said.

The case came to court in the eastern town of Dijon after a neighbour saw the name pop up on a list of available Wi-Fi networks in July and called the police.

“There was an investigation and searches but nothing was found. There is nothing to suggest [my client] shares this ideology. On the contrary, he strenuously denies it,” Manhouli said.

The court handed the youth a suspended jail sentence after he turned down an offer of 100 hours of community service.

The lawyer said there had been a spate of similar criminal charges since January 2015 when authorities were instructed to quickly prosecute suspected cases of sympathy for terrorism.

On 13 November, France will mark the first anniversary of coordinated jihadist attacks in Paris that left 130 people dead.
