“The documents not only contained detailed instructions on how to carry out an assassination as part of Jihad, but also suggested preferred targets and identified the nationalities of those to be targeted in order of ‘importance.
“Terrorism takes many forms and this conviction sends a clear message that possession of this kind of material is criminal.”
Javed pleaded on 31 August 2012 to three counts contrary to section 58 of the Terrorism Act 2000.
On 5 January 2007 the defendant was convicted at the Central Criminal Court of offences of Soliciting Murder and Stirring Up Racial Hatred for which he was sentenced to a total of 6 years imprisonment on 18 July 2007. That sentence was later reduced to 4 years on appeal.
