BERN, SWITZERLAND (BNO NEWS)
The Swiss federal government on Wednesday decided
to outlaw all support for the Islamic State,
banning all activities including propaganda,
fundraising and recruiting which supports the
al-Qaeda splinter group that declared itself an
Islamic caliphate in parts of Syria and Iraq.
The regulation bans all activities in support of the
al-Qaeda splinter group, in Switzerland but also outside
of the country for Swiss citizens.
“It not only forbids the activities of the organization here
at home and abroad, but also all actions designed
to support them personally or materially, for example
through propaganda, fundraising or the recruitment
of new members,” a government statement said.
