In Austria, the court sentenced Monika Unger, the leader of the underground radical organization Staatenbund Osterreich (Austrian Confederation) to 14 years in prison for high treason. This is reported by The Local.
The organization involves about 2,600 members. The 'Austrian Confederation' claims the Austrian authorities and its laws to be illegitimate.
Unger wanted the Austrian army to overthrow the government; moreover, she called for military assistance from Russia.
For such actions, or rather for high treason, the judge sentenced the woman and stated that such a court decision was "a clear signal that anti-state actions would not be tolerated."
In addition to Unger, another 13 participants were arrested in April 2017. The court accused of treason deputy leader of the radical organization. He was a 71-year-old former police officer. He was sentenced to 10 years in prison.
Twelve other members were convicted of "creating an anti-state association"; they were sentenced to three years in prison.
