Four men from east London have appeared in court with two others on charges involving terrorism or fraud after their arrests at the port of Dover or raids on their homes.

All six appeared before Westminster magistrates yesterday after being charged at the weekend by the Met’s Counter Terrorism Command.

Michael Coe, 33, from Central Park Road, East Ham, and Simon Keeler, 43, from Solander Gardens in Shadwell, are both accused of “preparing and assisting others in preparing acts of terrorism, supporting a proscribed organisation and conspiracy to possess false identity documents”.

Two others from east London are charged with conspiring to possess and produce false identity documents—Zagum Perviaz, 35, from Frinton Road in East Ham, and Hamzah Safdar, 24, from Cecil Road in Plaistow.

Anthony Small, 33, from Sydenham in south London, is charged with preparing acts of terrorism, supporting a proscribed organisation and conspiracy to possess false identity documents. Abdulraouf Eshati, 28, of no fixed address, is charged with possessing articles in connection with commissioning, preparing, and instigating acts of terrorism, as well as offences under the 1971 Immigration Act.
