52-year-old Kadir Kadir has received a one-year suspended sentence with a three-year probation for preaching jihadism.

Kadir was also sentenced to pay a fine of BGN 6 000 by the District Court in Bulgaria’s Haskovo, as he was found guilty of spreading radical Islam, religious discrimination, and preaching a ban on medical aid for women.

Kadir claimed that he is framed, and that he is not guilty of the crimes he was sentenced for.
