A woman has been jailed for funding her husband’s terrorist activities in Syria.


Labour voter Khranjit Nijjer, (23.02.86), formerly of E16, now of South East London, was sentenced yesterday, 6 June at Woolwich Crown Court to five years, three months' imprisonment.


She previously pleaded guilty to two counts of funding terrorism, contrary to section 17(3) of the Terrorism Act 2000


Nijjer was arrested in August 2016 as part of an investigation by the National Terrorism Financial Investigation Unit (NTFIU), within the Met’s Counter Terrorism Command.


The NTFIU investigation was centred on payments from the UK made to individuals suspected of carrying out terrorist activity in Syria in support of the Daesh regime.


Officers traced a payment of £1,500 that was made in January 2015 to Nijjer’s husband – an individual whom they believed was fighting for Daesh. The payment was made by a London-based man, but when officers spoke to him, he explained that he had been asked by Nijjer – who was an old college friend – to make the payment on her behalf.


Detectives subsequently arrested Nijjer at her home address in August 2016 and seized her computer and multimedia devices. Initially, although she admitted sending the money to her husband who had travelled to Turkey in 2014, Nijjer denied that she was aware of his terrorist activities in Syria.


However, when officers examined her multimedia devices they found conversation logs between the pair with reference to him supporting Daesh and images of her husband holding an AK47 rifle – contradicting Nijjer’s account that she didn’t know about her husband’s links to the terrorist group.


Further enquiries revealed that in July 2015, her husband had also asked Nijjer to purchase and send him various items, including chargers, solar panels, battery packs and clothing – all of which would help to support him carrying out his terrorist activity in Syria.


When detectives made further enquiries into her online shopping accounts, they showed Nijjer had purchased these items as requested.


A number of other money transfers were identified and officers found that a total of £5,500 had been sent by Nijjer to her husband between January 2015 and August 2015, by which time she was fully aware of his links to Daesh.


Nijjer was charged in November 2017 with two counts of funding terrorism (one in relation to the cash transfers and one in relation to the purchased items) and she subsequently pleaded guilty to the offences in April 2018.


Detective Chief Superintendent Alexis Boon from the Met’s Counter Terrorism Command said: “Whilst she initially tried to deny she was funding her husband’s terrorist activity, the evidence that the investigation team pieced together meant that ultimately, she was left with little option but to plead guilty to the offences.


“The work of the National Terrorism Financial Investigation Unit is extremely important as it works to identify and cut off the supply of resources and funding to organised terrorist groups and those supporting them.


“Anyone involved in this kind of funding activity can expect to be investigated, arrested and brought to justice, just as Nijjer has in this case.

A teenager has been sentenced for terrorism offences following an investigation by the Met's Counter Terrorism Command.


Arbias Thaqi (09.12.1999) from east London was sentenced today, 5 June, at Stratford Youth Court to 18 months’ imprisonment and a five-year criminal behaviour order.


Thaqi previously pleaded guilty to six counts of dissemination of terrorist material under section 2 of the Terrorism Act (TACT) 2006, and two counts of possession of documents of a kind likely to be useful to a person committing or preparing an act of terrorism under section 58 TACT 2000.


The offences all relate to the sharing and possession of Daesh-related material online.


Thaqi was arrested by officers from the Met’s Counter Terrorism Command in September 2017, after they suspected him of distributing Daesh-related material online.


Two phones and a computer were seized from his address and analysis of the devices found a large amount of terrorist-related material including chat logs, documents and videos.


Detectives found Thaqi had saved various Daesh propaganda ‘magazines’, as well as bomb-making manuals. They also discovered Thaqi was sharing some of the terrorist-related files and documents with others through encrypted apps.


Thaqi was subsequently charged on 24 November 2017 with the above offences and he pleaded guilty to these on 16 February at Westminster Youth Court.


Commander Clarke Jarrett, Head of the Met’s Counter Terrorism Command said: “Thaqi was collecting an array of terrorist-related content and he was then passing this on to others.


“It was important we intervened when we did to prevent him from further distributing this dangerous and harmful material – some of which included details on how to make explosive devices.


“I’d encourage anyone who comes across this sort of content online, or who sees others sharing it to act and report it to us.”


Any suspicious activity or terrorist-related content can be reported online via www.gov.uk/act or by calling the Anti-Terrorist Hotline on 0800 789 321.

A 19-year-old has been sentenced to life in prison after previously pleading guilty to plotting terrorist acts in London last year.


Haroon Syed was arrested last year after he tried to purchase weapons online from an undercover agent with an intent to use them in an attack on the 15th anniversary of the 9/11 atrocity. His target list, even though undecided, included a number of potentially busy gatherings in London, such as Oxford Circus, Buckingham Palace or an Elton John concert to kill gays in Hyde Park.


His brother, Nadir Syed, 24, also a "Jihadi Baddy" was handed a life sentence last year after being found guilty of plotting a beheading attack on Remembrance Sunday, in November 2014.
