The lawyer of "Jihad Jane", Mark Wilson, tells CNN that he expects a longer prison sentence is awaiting his client. According to TT, it is however not clear why she is now prepared to give a "guilty" plea.
When asked to comment LaRose's planned "guilty" plea, Vilks tells the news agency TT that he has become "hardened" to this kind of news. "A lot of people try to make a joke out the fact that she was just an American house wife. And sure, there are a lot of amateur terrorists that are not particularly skilful, but they are often prepared to give it a try, and that id bad enough," says Vilks.
Vilks tells TT that he has recently received new threats. According to the artist himself, it was a man who called him up from Somalia. "He was very brief, he only had three words: 'Soon, soon, soon,' he shouted down the phone," says Vilks. Then he followed it up with a mobile phone text message with the same words, and signed it with "al Shabab". The Swedish intelligence service Säpo is aware of these latest threats.
