Silvia Celestín was caught and remanded in custody nearly three years ago after it was found she was using social media to lure and brainwash women into joining DAESH, the so-called ‘Islamic State’.
Sra Celestín allegedly arranged for women to marry existing Jihad warriors based in the war-torn Middle Eastern country.
She is also said to have intended to travel to Syria herself to join the ranks of DAESH.
Among her contacts in the global terror network, Celestín was linked to Moroccan national Ayoub Moutchou, who was arrested in Germany in 2015 after fleeing Spain.
Moutchou told an undercover IT expert, via Facebook, that he was planning a terrorist attack in Spain.
He has since been jailed for eight years.
National Police in Spain have an excellent record for catching DAESH supporters in their early stages and before they have progressed too far with their cause.
The number of offenders in Spain remains considerably lower than elsewhere in Europe, including France and the UK, and the majority of those detected have been involved in recruiting rather than actively planning attacks.
