UK: Three Muslim Men Sentenced To Prison For Preparing Acts Of Terrorism

BBC News – “Three British men, including an ex-police community support officer and a Muslim convert, have been jailed for preparing acts of terrorism.

Richard Dart was jailed for six years, Imran Mahmood received nine years and nine months and Jahangir Alom was jailed for four years and six months.

The London-based trio, who pleaded guilty in March, discussed targeting the town of Royal Wootton Bassett.

The judge said the three were ‘committed to acts of terrorism’.

They were arrested in the capital city weeks before the Olympic Games…

Dart, 30, of Broadway, Ealing, west London, and Mahmood, 22, from Dabbs Hill Lane, Northolt, west London, were both born in the UK. Alom, 26, of Abbey Road, Stratford, was born in Bangladesh but is a British citizen.

Mr Justice Simon told them they held ‘radical Islamist beliefs and have shown yourselves to be committed to acts of terrorism’.

Dart refused to stand when he was sentenced, and said: ‘I don’t wish to stand up, I believe ruling and judging is only for Allah.’

The judge said that they were all ‘committed fundamentalists’ who would have been prepared to kill.

Mahmood and Dart were both given extended sentences, meaning that they will serve two-thirds of their prison terms rather than half, and they will spend five years on licence.

He told Dart and Mahmood: ‘I’m satisfied to the required criminal standard that neither of you had ruled out an attack in the United Kingdom, and that you, Mahmood, were looking at arming yourself with a bomb.’

After the sentencing, the Metropolitan Police said the convictions followed a painstaking investigation by the Met’s counter-terrorism command and security services that had uncovered secret conversations about potential attacks in the UK and abroad.” Read more.
