A man from Barking has been convicted of sharing a “dangerous” terrorist publication after he posted a video by the so-called Islamic State on social media.
Abdul Hamid, 31, pleaded guilty at the Old Bailey yesterday
Hamid shared the video on December 13 last year, and was arrested by officers from Counter-Terrorism Command on February 18, who seized mobile phones and laptops.
On May 11, he attended a central London police station, where he was charged with “disseminating a terrorist publication intending to encourage acts of terrorism.”
Commander Dean Haydon, of the Met Police’s Counter-Terrorism Command, said: “We cannot underestimate the dangerous nature of the propaganda produced by Isis and the influence it can have on the vulnerable, which is why it is so important to hold to account those who share with others these social media posts.”
