UPDATE: latest from your Speakers’ Corner roving reporter.
The man we all know as Abu Qasim, a regular at Speakers’ Corner in London for over 10 years, was this afternoon sentenced to prison for 4.5 years. The trial took place at Britain’s most famous court, the Old Bailey in London.
His real name is Mohammed Abdul Ahad, 38, of Euston, London.
I asked the Speakers’ Corner roving reporter (an anonymous friend) who was present at the sentencing this afternoon at the Old Bailey: ‘How did Ahad look in the dock?’
His demeanor was low!!
He kept huffing and puffing a bit.
He stood up and was sent down.
Key moment was the tennis match between his defence Barrister and the Judge where she (yes the lady Barrister) was trying everything under the sun to get her mitigations in. Ie carer for his mother, sick brother, was a fool a Johnny English rather than a James Bond, a delusional of low intelligence, gullible and a bad communicator. His previous mental issues at age 14.
The Judge was having none of it and even mentioned he cannot be that bad a communicator if he was making speeches at Speakers’ Corner!
The Judge described Ahad as a compulsive liar and puller of wool over eyes individual and a clear promoter of Terrorism.
1 year after on Licence.
10 year counter terror database.
Destruction of his Computer hardware software, CD’s and Authentic Tauheed records.
He will have to report everything about his life to Police for 10 years!
Also a previous benefit fraud conviction was also mentioned and although it had no bearing on the terrorism case it showed him of dishonest character yet again.
That is all from your SC roving reporter.
