JEDDAH: A special court has sentenced a Syrian national to 19 years in jail for supporting Al-Qaeda and other terror-related activities.
The sentence includes three years for forgery, three years for information technology offenses and 18 months for violating border security regulations, according to a report in an online publication on Friday.
The man was also found guilty on charges of declaring all Arab government officials non-believers, seeking to topple them and the Saudi government, and traveling to Somalia to take part in fighting there.
The court found that he had procured a forged residential permit to enter the Kingdom illegally after returning from Somalia, stored seditious material on his computer, including video clips and texts of speeches of Al-Qaeda leaders and members, and formulas for manufacturing explosives.
