A Swiss resident has been given a six-month suspended prison sentence for spreading propaganda for the militant Islamic State (IS) group over Facebook.
The verdict includes a CHF2,000 ($2,127) fine according to a decision by the Office of the Attorney General, published by the SonntagsBlick newspaper.
The defendant was found guilty of putting online several videos and photos of IS propaganda targeting western nations, including Switzerland, between May and December 2016.
The man, who denied the charges, apparently claimed the videos were for his own use only. His home was searched by police in May 2017.
There are currently about 60 other legal proceedings underway in Switzerland for allegedly supporting banned Islamic or other criminal organisations, according to the justice authorities.
