FIVE activists involved in a plot to set up a terrorist training camp are challenging their sentences which they claim are too harsh.
The men – three of whom come from Stoke-on-Trent – all appealed
the length of their jail terms in London's Appeal Court yesterday.
They include Usman Khan, now 22 but who was just 19 when he became
involved in the plot, who was one of nine men sentenced over linked
conspiracies to bomb the London Stock Exchange and establish terrorist
training schools in Kashmir.
Khan, of Persia Walk, Tunstall, was caged indefinitely for public
protection – which is almost identical to a life term – at London's
Woolwich Crown Court in February last year.
