Written 23rd February 2015 by Olliers Solicitors

Olliers represented a client who was sentenced last week for  an offence under section 58 of the Terrorism Act.

The defendant  was charged with an offence of possessing a record of information likely to be useful for terrorism. This related to hoarding documents on covert computer use while staying at the Hafan Wen drug rehabilitation clinic in North Wales.  However after  using the communal computer room how-to instructions on making detonators were found.  The defendant’s room at the clinic was searched and hidden inside the wardrobe was a ‘cyber-warfare’ guide to using the internet without the FBI finding a trace.

The defendant admitted the offence under the Terrorism Act  and received a 12-month sentence, suspended for two years, plus 200 hours unpaid work. Furthermore the sentencing Judge,  Judge David Stockdale QC concluded he posed no threat to the public.

Zita Spencer of Olliers and Allan Compton represented.
