The Abu Dhabi Court of Appeal sentenced a Filipino to 10 years in prison after being convicted on charges of joining the terrorist "ISIS" organization and setting up a group of websites to promote the organization's ideas.

 The court also fined two million dirhams ($ 544,000), confiscating all personal computers, mobile phones and cameras, and shutting down all the websites he created to publish data, articles, videos, photos and films promoting the terrorist "ISIS".

In his defense case, the defense lawyer said that the defendant did not have the technical skills or time to operate a network of accounts on social networking sites.

"The creation of these seven accounts requires a team of highly skilled people with the time to manage them." "This is not possible for my client who works in his sponsor's home and does not even have the ability to manage such accounts."
