Vigilante-patrol Muslim given Asbo

A Muslim convert who took part in vigilante patrols and promoted extremist material has been given a ground-breaking Asbo banning him from preaching in public, Scotland Yard said.

Jordan Horner has repeatedly been linked to extremist groups over recent years and is responsible for targeting people in east London with fellow fanatics.

The 20-year-old has taken part in vigilante patrols and street protests promoting extreme versions of Islam and calling for a 'Sharia State' in the UK. He is also thought to have spread 'Sharia controlled zone' leaflets and posters in Waltham Forest, Scotland Yard said.

Horner today appeared at the Old Bailey, where a series of restrictions were imposed in one of the first Asbos of its kind in the UK.

Waltham Forest Borough Commander Chief Superintendent, Mark Collins, said: "The granting of an Asbo against Jordan Horner sends a clear message that extremist behaviour will not be tolerated on our streets."

Horner is banned from being in possession of a loudhailer in any public place and e nter any educational establishment unless a registered student or in relation to visiting family members and from m aking "unsolicited approaches" to promote Sharia law which causes harassment, alarm or distress.

The order - which lasts for five years - also states he cannot hand out material promoting Sharia law or place posters and signs which damages a public advert.

He is also banned from being in a public place with Anjem Choudary, Royal Barnes, Ricardo McFarlane and Dean Le Page.

Barnes, 23, of Hackney, east London, this week pleaded guilty to posting sickening videos on YouTube glorifying the horrific killing of Fusilier Lee Rigby.

Barnes and wife Rebekah Dawson, 22, recorded and uploaded three videos shortly after the murder in Woolwich, south London, in May 2013.

In one of the videos posted under his account Musa Real Talks, Barnes hailed the murder as a "brilliant day" and in a follow-up he mocked the outpouring of public grief, laughing uncontrollably as he drove past floral tributes.

He pleaded guilty to three counts of disseminating a terrorist publication and one of inciting murder during a hearing at the Old Bailey and is currently awaiting sentence.
