Sydney militant Ahmed Merhi is pleading Australia to rescue him after he was sentenced to death by hanging in Iraq for having connections with terror group ISIS. Merhi, 27, has been convicted for being a member of Islamic State in the Central Criminal Court in Baghdad.
He travelled to Syria in 2014 or 2015, says a report by Daily Mail.
He claimed that he travelled to the war-torn country for relief but the judge rejected his claims.
He told NewsCorp that he wanted to come back home to Australia and argued that he had been wrongly convicted. Merhi said Iraq had no right to prosecute him as there was no justice and no evidence or witnesses.Click Here: NRL Telstra Premiership
