A teenager who shared graphic terrorist videos online and stockpiled instructions on bomb making and knife attacks has been jailed for three years and four months today, Monday, 17 December.
Met Police counter terrorism detectives, assisted by the Met Police Specialist Firearms Command, arrested Sudesh Amman, 18 (27.12.99) of north-west London within 24 hours of launching an investigation into his activities.
Forensic specialists then set about trawling through almost 10 terabytes of data found on his laptop, mobile phone and other digital devices to identify his numerous crimes.
Amman was subsequently convicted and sentenced at the Old Bailey for six counts of collection of information of a kind likely to be useful to a person committing or preparing an act of terrorism and seven counts of dissemination of terrorist material.
Detectives from the Met Police Counter Terrorism Command arrested Amman on a north-London street at around 00:10 on 17 May 2018 after identifying on 16 May 2018 that a blogger had published one of his Telegram messages online.
