According to the broadcaster, the 27-year-old woman could have been sentenced to death under the Iraqi counterterrorism law.
It is possible that Boughedir will not remain in prison for the rest of her life, as, since the reform of the Iraqi penal code, the life sentence is no longer applied in the country, which means that the young woman may be released in at least 20 years, the channel added, citing French journalist Nicolas Henin.
However, in late March, the Iraqi Supreme Judicial Council ordered a new trial and decided to revise the charges against Boughedir adding the accusation of Daesh membership.
Boughedir is yet another French citizen sentenced to life imprisonment in Iraq. In April this year, an Iraqi court sentenced 29-year-old Djamila Boutoutaou over the same charges.
