Brit terrorist jailed for 15 years in Iraq

From the Times:
A STUDENT who slipped into Iraq to fight alongside al-Qaeda militants has been jailed for 15 years in a warning to other Britons not to join groups fighting US-led forces…

An official from the Justice Ministry said: “This is a harsh message to would-be jihadis from abroad that if you are caught in terrorist activity you will get no leniency.”…

Muneef has lodged an appeal, but if the sentence is upheld, (his lawyer) Mr Sharif wants the British Government to ask for him to be returned home to serve his sentence.
Wouldn't that be neocolonialist interference in Iraq’s judicial affairs?
