— After her release and the suspension of the remainder of her sentence in her first case, a Saudi woman returned to her criminal ways of being involved in terrorist acts and in other crimes. The Specialized Criminal Court in Riyadh began its trial of the woman who professed support of the terrorist organization of Daesh and continued to back a supporter of the organization and also marrying him without her father's consent.

The Public Prosecutor's Office called on the Court to cancel the suspension of the remainder of her previous sentence and to penalize her further by severely adding time to her revoked sentence. The Attorney General pressed four charges against the Saudi woman accused of supporting the terrorist organization.

She also contacted a supporter of the organization and married him without the consent of her father. She also allowed him to use her mobile device to communicate with the organization and stay in contact by using the unit to tap the group’s news.

The court also accused the woman of storing information that would harm the public order, and uploaded in her mobile audio clips glorifying Daesh and calling for people to fight and abuse security men.

There was also a video clip of Osama Bin Laden and slogans of the terrorist organization. She also faces charges of retracting what she had already promised when she was released in her first case.

At the end of the hearing, the prosecutor called for strict penalty against her, to confiscate her mobile phone, close her websites and to cancel the suspension of the remainder of her previous sentence while also preventing her from traveling.

Okaz learned that the defendant was born in 1412 H and holds a high school diploma. She was previously tried and was released on strict bail.
