Terror mag suspect remanded in custody

Oldham

A terror suspect accused of hoarding copies of an Isis e-magazine was remanded in custody today (Mon).

Atiq Ahmed, 34, allegedly had five editions of ‘Rumiyah’ magazine, created by the terror group for propaganda and recruitment stored on his computer.

He was detained by police after they executed a search warrant at his Oldham address on 19 December.

Bearded Ahmed faces five charges for possession of documents that could be useful for someone committing or preparing acts of terrorism.

Mr Justice Haddon Cave told Ahmed he would find a judge to hear the case in the north of England as the defendant is from Lancashire.

‘It has been suggested to me that it will be convenient that the trial to take place in the north,’ he said:

The trial date will be set administratively and the case is likely to be heard at Manchester crown court.

Ahmed, of Copster Hill Road, Oldham, was remanded in custody.
