The Danish Supreme Court has increased the sentence of Umut Olgun, a 32-year-old Turkish citizen living in Denmark who has been convicted of delivering drone equipment to ISIS.

In the district court, Umut Olgun was sentenced to four years in prison. In the Court of Appeal, he was sentenced to eight years in prison and deported from Denmark. On Friday, the Danish Supreme Court sharpened the sentence to ten years in prison and deportation with a permanent ban on entry.

The court upheld the verdict of the Court of Appeal for two other men.

All three have been found guilty of promoting the activities of a terrorist organization. They bought drone components that were to be delivered to ISIS. The equipment was to be used in the terrorist organization’s drone program, the verdict states.

The equipment, including six thermal cameras, was purchased at a drone store in 2017. The men have denied the charges and pleaded not guilty.
