Islamabad [Pakistan], Aug. 31 (ANI): A Pakistani citizen has been ordered to leave Romania on charges of promoting ' extremist Islamism' online, causing a threat to national security by a court in Bucharest.

The Court of Appeal ruled that the man, identified only by his initials, S.A, should be expelled for 10 years on Tuesday, reports the Express Tribune.

The man is said to have entered the country illegally in 2015 and then married a Romanian woman, according to Romania's main domestic intelligence agency.

On the basis of marriage, he then sought to obtain a residency permit.

The agency said that the man was kept under surveillance and it was found that he was involved in spreading propaganda online for Pakistani "terrorists."

Earlier this year, a Milan Court had sentenced a Pakistani and a Tunisian to six years in prison for threatening terror attacks in Italy via social media.

They were deported to their respective countries after serving their sentences. (ANI)
