Place of Birth: Bradford, United Kingdom;
Umar Hafeez from Bradford has been jailed after police discovered hundreds of graphic terrorist videos, documents and publications – including guides to weapons and explosives – on his laptop. He claimed the material was research for a book he was writing, but no evidence was found to support this.
A letter written by the 38-year-old in 2015 also stated he hoped other members of his family could be brave, be able-bodied and use the skills they learned to become martyrs.
He also produced a comprehensive list of things he believed would help form a caliphate. This included tactical suggestions for effective protection of citizens of the ‘state’ in the event of bombardment, the development of several media agencies, how to best to circulate propaganda and information and modifying items to becoming IED’s.
Hafeez was first arrested in October 2018 and a number of his digital devices were seized and examined. He was then further arrested in January 2019 before boarding a flight to Europe.
Hafeez was charged with thirteen offences of possessing a record likely to be useful to a person committing or preparing an act of terrorism contrary to Section 58 of the Terrorism Act 2000 following an intelligence led investigation by Counter Terrorism Policing North East.
He has now been sentenced to four years and seven months in prison after pleading guilty to possessing terrorist publications.
