Sabir was arrested in February, following an intelligence-led investigation by North East Counter Terrorism Police, with support from West Yorkshire Police.

He was charged on February 28, 2022.

Detective Chief Superintendent Peter Craig, head of North East Counter Terrorism Policing, said: ‘Sabir’s actions, alongside his possession of terrorist material, demonstrate an extremist mindset and a desire to help people. sharing the same ideas.

“Knowingly providing funds to people involved in terrorism is a serious offence.

“Our investigations showed that Sabir knew his money would be used to further the cause of terrorist groups and potentially fund terrorist activities. Financial support allows terrorism to survive and ultimately puts innocent people at risk.

“If you suspect anyone of supporting terrorism in any form, I urge you to ACT. You can report your concerns on gov.uk/ACT or to the police confidentially on 0800 789 321. In an emergency, always dial 999.”
