Law and accountancy student jailed for possessing bomb-making manual

A 27-year old law and accountancy student at London South Bank University who had been to the Syrian-Turkish border and mixed with jihadists was sentenced by a judge at the Old Bailey.

Sentencing Erol Incedol, Mr Justice Nicol said: ‘The potential for such bombs to cause death, injury and destruction are obvious. The fear, panic and terror which explosions also bring are often a deliberate part of the terrorist’s ambition.’ Much of the trial has been subject to reporting restrictions.

Safe house

The judge disclosed that Mr Incedol had learnt about weapons and explosives in a safe house at the Syrian-Turkish border. Mr Incedol was cleared by a jury last month of plotting to make a terrorist attack. The jury took 27 hours to make its decision of whether the Turkish-born student was guilty or not of planning an attack or an assassination.
