Working together, the Met’s Counter Terrorism Command (CTC) and Counter Terrorism Police North-West (CTPNW) have disrupted the illegal financial activities of 29-year-old Ayub Nurhussein (07.09.90) from Stockwell and his associate, 30-year-old Said Mohammed (18.05.89) from Longsight, Manchester who sent funds of approximately £2,700 to Daesh. (aka ISIS)
The investigation found that Nurhussein and Mohammed communicated with one another and a third individual – believed to be based in Iraq – to send money to support Daesh fighters in Iraq and Syria. Detectives found that they sent the money via contacts in Denmark on three separate occasions in April, June and July 2019.
Nurhussein and Mohammed were sentenced as follows – all to run concurrently:
- For section 58 TACT, 2000 he (Nurhussein) was sentenced to a total of nine years’ and six months’ imprisonment (with an extended licence period of three years’ and six months’)
- For section 2 TACT 2006 he was sentenced to four years’ and six months’ imprisonment
- For section 17 he was sentenced to seven years’ and three months’ imprisonment
- Mohammed was given a determinate sentence of five years’ and three months’ imprisonment taking into account his early plea.
Nurhussein and Mohammed appeared together via video-link from HMP Wandsworth on (fri) and giggled throughout the hearing, guffawing loudly as they were described as ‘deeply radical.’ The court heard Mohammed was a refugee who had entered the UK through Calais. He grew up in wartorn Eritrea where his home was burnt down with him inside after his father expressed political dissent, the court heard.
