A court in Slovenia has sentenced a 25-year-old student to 15 months in jail for sending a letter containing a poisonous substance to Czech Finance Minister Andrej Babiš last year. He was found guilty of producing and selling illegal substances. The judge ruled that the accusations of terrorism were unsubstantiated and there was no direct proof that the young man had any connection to the group which tried to blackmail the Czech government into giving them tens of millions of crowns. According to the court the student had simply fulfilled a client’s request in sending the letter containing the toxic substance to a given address. The student’s lawyer has appealed the decision.
