Dudley man jailed for supplying terrorist literature to prison inmates
From the Bromsgrove Advertiser
A DUDLEY man has been jailed today (Tuesday, April 7) for supplying terrorist material to inmates at a Kent prison. Usman Choudhary, who was sending letters to convicted terrorists and other inmates pleaded guilty to disseminating terrorist material at Kingston Crown Court
Usman Choudhary, who was sending letters to convicted terrorists and other inmates pleaded guilty to disseminating terrorist material at Kingston Crown Court.
The court heard Choudhary posted an extremist publication - which the prosecution argued was reckless and could encourage terrorism - to a Muslim convert at Swaleside Prison. The material was intercepted by Prison staff before it reached the intended recipient.
He was arrested and a search of his house recovered a range of extremist literature plus records of hundreds of letters and small gifts sent to terrorist prisoners. However, it was not until the unemployed Dudley man sent the offending publication - a book called Join the Caravan, which encourages violent jihad - to the Swaleside inmate that his actions changed from being a potential cause for concern to a criminal offence.
He was sentenced to nine months in custody.
