The 47-year-old was found guilty of publishing IS videos and pictures on line, including executions, in 2016 and 2017.

He was originally given a suspended fine of CHF 5,800.

But he appealed to the Federal Criminal Court in Bellinzona. That court decided to raise the fine by CHF 1,400.

The man claims he was hoping to have a deterrent effect with the videos. His lawyer says he will go to the Supreme Court.
