Terrorists appeal

July 25, 2013

The Lord Chief Justice is to decide whether to quash three Manchester jihadi terrorists’ convictions.

The trio wanted to kill Jews, used anti-Israel films to recruit terrorists and organised support for a Gaza convoy.

Munir Farooqi is appealing against both his conviction and life sentence for preparing acts of terrorism and three counts of soliciting to murder.

Matthew Newton and Israr Malik are appealing against convictions for preparation for acts of terrorism and dissemination of terrorist publications.
