    Four people from Russia’s Chechen Republic can face from two to 12 years in prison for aiding the Daesh terrorist group, according to National Public Prosecutor's Office.

    WARSAW (Sputnik) – Four people from Russia’s Chechen Republic have been accused in Poland of aiding the Islamic State (ISIL or Daesh) terror group, National Public Prosecutor's Office said Thursday in a statement.

    “Taus G., Zaur G., Alvi Y. and Shamkhan A.have been charged with participating in an organized criminal group and fund raising to finance terror-related crimes linked to the so-called Islamic State’s activities,” the Prosecutor’s Office said.

    The detained people can face from two to 12 years in prison.

    The investigation revealed the criminal group, including the detained, had been operating in Polish cities of Warsaw, Bialystok and Lomza as well as in Turkey from May till July, 2014. Apart from financing Daesh activities, its members also provided one of the IS terrorists with medical care and helped him stay in Poland.
