Hana Khan is Willesden, north-west London borne female. She was 21 when, in the summer of 2013, she was seduced by dreams of marriage into giving Jafar Turay a total of £1,000 while he was fighting in Syria.
Mr Turay left the UK in July 2012 to join rebels fighting President Assad’s regime.
He first travelled to Saudi Arabia and Egypt before crossing the border into Syria from Turkey in June 2013.
Mr Turay was previously known as Joel Kelvin Daley before he converted to Islam and was wanted by police in connection with a serious assault before he fled the UK.
Khan who lives with her family in a terraced house in Willesden, northwest London was found guilty of two counts of funding terrorism following a two week trial at the Old Bailey.
The judge said Khan was in ‘marked contrast’ to other young women in the UK who have gone to join jihadi fighters out of ‘conviction’.
Hana Khan sentenced to 21 months suspended for two years after being found guilty of funding terrorism in what judge said was exceptional case.
