Radical Islamist faces prison term
by Nina Berglund
State prosecutors asked a Norwegian court on Thursday to sentence a radical Islamist who was born in Norway to at least five more months in prison. They argued that he has made serious threats and encouraged violence, including the proposed stoning of a lesbian author.
The prosecutors are seeing a 10-month prison term for Ubaydullah Hussain, plus another two years on probation. Three of the 10 months are a suspended sentence, however, and Hussain would receive double credit for the one month he's already spent in custody, since he was held in isolation. That means he faces another five months if the court accepts the proposed sentence.
