A teenager and three men from east London appear in court today charged with terrorism and criminal offences.

The four were arrested last Wednesday at addresses in the boroughs of Newham and Barking.

Umar Ahmed Haque, 24, arrested at his home in Newham, is accused of an offence under the 2006 Terrorism Act with the intent to commit acts of terrorism engaged in conduct in preparation for that intention between March 25 and May 18.

He is also charged with four offences under the 2000 Terrorism Act of possessing a record of information that was likely to be useful in committing or preparing an act of terrorism.

Muhammad Abid, 27, also from Newham, was charged under the 2000 Terrorism Act where he had information on or before March 25 which he knew or believed might be of material assistance in securing the arrest, prosecution or conviction of Umar Haque, for an offence involving committing, preparing or instigating an act of terrorism, but did not disclose the information to police “as soon as reasonable practicable”.

The third person charged is 18-year-old Abuthaher Mamun, from Barking, under the 2006 Terrorism Act, that between March 25 and May 18 intended to assist another to commit acts of terrorism by engaging in preparing and giving effect to that intention.

The fourth person, Nadeem Ilyas Patel, 25, also from Newham, is charged under the 1977 Criminal Law Act with conspiring with Umar Haque on March 30 to possess any firearm or imitation firearm with intent to cause fear of violence.

All four have been remanded in custody to appear at Westminster Magistrates’ Court today.
