Swiss Muslim group denies wrongdoing over jihadist documentary
by Michael Shields
An executive at a Swiss Muslim organisation said on Monday that a documentary he had made about jihadists in Syria was intended to shed a harsh light on their activities rather than glorify them as prosecutors have alleged.
A criminal investigation against Naim Cherni, head of the Islamic Central Council of Switzerland's (ICCS) multimedia department, was launched with the country on high alert after the Islamist State attacks in Paris on Nov. 13 which killed 130 people.
Speaking at a news conference in Berne, Cherni said his film was "an important contribution in the fight against Islamic State", the SDA news agency reported.
