Man charged with breaching terrorist notification requirements

Man charged with breaching terrorist notification requirements

A man who was jailed for assisting others to go to Syria to fight for the so-called Islamic State has been charged with breaches of his terrorist notification requirements.

Isaac Idris, formerly known as Mustakim Jaman, was sentenced at Kingston Crown Court in November 2015 to six years in prison.

The 29-year-old was convicted of helping five men from Portsmouth travel to Syria to join Isis.

His brother, Tuhin Shahensha, was sentenced to six years for preparing terrorist acts and six years for preparing to travel, to run concurrently.

Another of his brothers, Ifthekar Jaman, died in Syria in 2013 after joining the jihadist group.

Idris, from Portsmouth, Hampshire, has now been charged after he allegedly failed to notify police of his financial information, phone number and email addresses.

A Hampshire police spokesman said: “A man has been charged with offences connected to a breach of terrorist notification requirements as part of an investigation led by officers from counter terrorism policing south east (CTPSE), supported by Hampshire Constabulary.

“Isaac Idris, from Hudson Road, Portsmouth, was arrested on Tuesday July 27 and subsequently charged with five breaches of a Part 4 Terrorist Notification Order, under Section 54 of the Counter Terrorism Act 2008.

“This relates to failing, without reasonable excuse to notify police of financial information, a phone number and email addresses.

Idris has been released on bail to appear at Westminster Magistrates’ Court on August 10.
