Germany: 2 ISIS wives and families brought to Germany will face no charges.

(Berlin) Two German Islamic State (ISIS) wives who were returned to Germany Thursday, will face no charges for links to to the terrorist group.

German federal prosecutors claim the women are radical Islamists, but their request for an arrest warrant was denied by Germany's Federal Supreme Court (BGH).  Last year, Attorney General Peter Frank announced his intention to go after "women who voluntarily join the IS community," which he said constituted "support for a foreign terrorist organization."

Hans-Georg Maasen, president of the Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution (BfV), previously said: "Women who have lived in IS-held areas over the last few years have often been radicalised. They identify so closely with the IS ideology that one can rightly call them jihadis."
