Two German nationals, included one of Syrian extraction, have been declared personae non-grata in Romania for ten years as a result of the Romanian Intelligence Service (SRI) taking specific measures as the two were carrying out activities that are seen as risks against national security under Romania's anti-terror legislation.
In a press statement released on Wednesday, SRI says that the two were quickly radicalised to adhere to the ideology of the terrorist organisation Daesh, while displaying a tendency toward violence.
"M.B. and N.R. conducted religious propaganda and indoctrination activities in other to covert some of their coreligionists to the Jihadi ideology. Moreover, during their stay in Romania, the two considered travelling to Syria to join the Daesh Caliphate," says SRI.
SRI says the two got in its crosshair in 2016.
