Hoxton woman among group charged with terrorism offences
A Hoxton woman is among a group of four people who will appear at court today (Thursday) charged with terrorism offences.
Ruksana Begum, 22, of the Provost Estate, was charged last night with possession of a document likely to be of use to a terrorist, after an investigation by the Met’s Counter Terrorism Command saw a series of arrests earlier this month.
Begum is accused of possessing a computer memory card on July 5, which allegedly contained “information of a kind likely to be useful to a person committing or preparing an act of terrorism”, according to the official wording of the charge.
Three men from London were charged with preparing for acts of terrorism as part of the same police operation.
Richard Dart, 29, of Broadway, Ealing, Imran Mahmood, 21, of Dabbs Hill Lane, Northolt, and Jahangir Alom, 26, of Abbey Road, Stratford, were also charged last night.
