(May 02, 2008) The terrorism laws of the United Kingdom are continuing to be implemented in the courts, with individuals prosecuted frequently being jailed under these provisions. Most recently, a male, British-born Muslim convert has been jailed for four and a half years for terrorism-related offenses that occurred during an inflammatory speech in a London mosque, after which he requested funds to finance insurgents overseas. A man was jailed for 16 months after admitting to possessing a CD version of an al Qaeda training manual found during a police raid on his home, which occurred after he came forward as a friend or acquaintance of the London July bombers.
