UK: ‘British man’ jailed for encouraging acts of jihad terror in Bangladesh and has been jailed on Friday following an investigation by the Metropolitan’s Counter Terrorism Command, according to the Asian Express.

“British man jailed for encouraging acts of terrorism in Bangladesh,” Dhaka Tribune, March 23, 2021:

Hamza was arrested by the Counter Terrorism Command after his social media messages encouraging acts of terrorism against Bangladesh government were reported to police in 2018. The officers seized his computer, phones and memory sticks for forensic examination.

Following a thorough investigation, counter terrorism officers identified five posts of concern. In his posts, Hamza urged people to commit serious acts of violence against the Bangladeshi Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina and her government.

The Counter Terrorism Internet Referral Unit later assessed the posts and found they were likely to be in breach of UK terrorism legislation.

He was charged in 2019 with four counts of encouraging terrorism.

According to Met’s Counter Terrorism Command, he was convicted for three posts he made between 1 September 2015 and 31 December 2015, one on 3 May 2018 and one on 16 May 2018. He was found not guilty of one other count of encouraging terrorism contrary to section 1(2) of the Terrorism Act 2006, which related to a post he made on 24 June 2018.

Commander Richard Smith, the head of the Met’s Counter Terrorism Command praised the member of the public for reporting Hamza’s social media posts to the police….
