Man Jailed Over Terror Videos
An Essex-based law student who posted Islamic terrorist propaganda on the internet after becoming radicalised has been jailed for five years.
Mohammed Gul was "pouring petrol on the fire'' and his actions could have spurred others to commit acts of terror, the Old Bailey heard.
Gul, 23 and from Hornchurch, who has since graduated, was found guilty of five counts of disseminating terrorist publications following a retrial at the Old Bailey.
Judge David Paget said his sentence had to be a deterrent to others and reflect the seriousness of the crime.
He told Gul: "I am in no doubt that you have become thoroughly radicalised. One can only express sympathy to your family that this has happened.
"You are an intelligent young man who had a good law degree from a good university. It is a tragedy that you have thrown it all away.''
The judge praised anti-terrorist police who, he said, "had a Herculean task'' in reviewing the huge amount of material on Gul's laptop.
It had involved the biggest review of data ever undertaken by the anti-terrorist branch of Scotland Yard and involved 30 officers and took six months, he said.
