The country of Germany has a potential terrorist to keep an eye on because the European Court of Human Rights won’t allow an immigrant man considered a “dangerous Islamist” to be deported.
An 18-year-old Russian man who authorities have deemed quite capable of planning a terror attack was literally being driven to the Frankfurt airport Tuesday when the court ruled to block the deportation, as they need to further consider the case.
Authorities have had the Russian teen, who has spent most of his life in Germany, on their radar, noting he showed himself to be sympathetic to ISIS when telling another Islamist that he is ready to launch an attack on civilians. He has also expressed suicidal thoughts.
Last week, Germany’s Constitutional Court ruled that immigrants who are suspected terrorists – dubbed Gefährder – may be deported, even if they have not yet been convicted of a crime.
