Man in court on terror charges

A man has appeared in court charged with terror offences as part of an investigation into a friend of one of the suspected Woolwich killers.

Shah Jalal Hussain, 30, of Cannon Street Road, Whitechapel, east London, was remanded in custody by District Judge John Zani at Westminster Magistrates' Court to appear next at the Old Bailey on June 28.

Hussain faces two charges connected to the alleged dissemination of terrorist publications.

He is accused of allowing others to access the video of a lecture, given by Khalid al-Husainan, and a text called Reality of the Rulers written by Abu Zubair Adil al-Adab and by doing so, encouraging or inducing the commission, preparation or instigation of acts of terrorism. Both alleged offences fall under the Terrorism Act 2006 and are said to have taken place on or before May 24.

There was no application for bail.

His arrest is linked to an investigation into Abu Nusaybah, also known as Ibrahim Abdullah-Hassan, who was arrested and charged with terror offences after he gave an interview on BBC Newsnight.

Nusaybah, who appeared in court over three terror charges, claimed that Michael Adebolajo, his friend who is accused of murdering Drummer Lee Rigby, had been offered a job by MI5.

Nusaybah, from Carr Road, Walthamstow, east London, faced three charges relating to filmed recordings of lectures and written text when he appeared at Westminster Magistrates' Court last week.

He was remanded in custody by District Judge Howard Riddle and will also appear at the Old Bailey on June 28.

Prosecutor Mark Topping told the court that the two will be charged jointly at the crown court on the matters facing Hussain.
