A German court found a man guilty of attempting to defraud Isis of £160,000, and granted legal protection to the terror group.

A judge in the Saarbruecken district court sentenced the 39-year-old hairdresser from Damascus to two years in jail. 

He had tried to get Islamic State operatives to transfer him up to 180,000 euros (£160,000), a court spokeswoman said on Monday.

The judge ruled that, under false pretences, the man said he would carry out attacks in Germany for the terror group – using explosives.

The money was never transferred to the man.

The court rejected the prosecution’s argument that the man was guilty of the more serious crime of planning to carry out attacks on behalf of the militant organisation.

Both parties have appealed the ruling to the Federal Supreme Court, the court spokeswoman said. 

Due to German privacy laws, the man, believed to be a Syrian refugee, was named only as Hasan A.
