Community service for threatening terrorist video

judge-hammer1-courtWILLEMSTAD - The two brothers who had put a threatening video shortly after the murder of politician Helmin Wiels on YouTube were sentenced today to 240 hours of community service each and six months' imprisonment . The Public Prosecution has requested 18 months in prison and six months probation.

They will remain three years under supervised probation. The judge ruled that placing the video can be considered as a terrorist threat. The brothers of 27 and 19 years old uploaded a video right after the murder of the late political leader Helmin Wiels on 5 May in which a disguised man with distorted vocals and menacing music in the background announced more bloodshed.

The judge said that the brothers have threatened a large group on Curacao in a terrifying way with this video and they have fueled strong feelings of fear and insecurity in the society.
