The Vienna gunman Kujtim Fejzulai duped officials in a 2019 trial by saying he had been led astray by the 'wrong mosque' and had renounced his ISIS ideals.
Fejzulai, 20, was jailed in April 2019 because he wanted to travel to Syria to join ISIS but he was granted early release in December under juvenile law.
He was not deemed capable of carrying out an attack, according to a report.
Despite facing between one and ten years imprisonment for membership in a criminal organisation and a terrorist organisation, he was given a reduced sentence of 22 months was granted early release from prison in December.
Belgium had a very similar case. A Muslim gets an AK-47, robs a currency exchange counter, gets into a gun fight, shoots an officer, and goes to jail, and then GETS RELEASED EARLY! He goes on to plan and bomb an airport terminal. It's the most lethal terrorist attack in Belgium since the Second World War.
Again, this is the most puzzling aspect:
Police thought he was not capable of planning an attack in Vienna, Klenk added.
This guy travelled and attempted to enter Syria to join ISIS. He wasn't a keyboard warrior. He took concrete steps. Yet, even after all that evidence and initiative, the police thought it was perfectly fine to release him eight years early from jail. Now, four people are dead.
