In May last year, Victoria Webster told Amaani Noor that a terrorist fighter in Syria was struggling with debt during Ramadan and needed money for food and supplies.
Webster gave Noor details of a PayPal account belonging to a group calling itself “The Merciful Hands”. Noor, who ran an online jewellery business, transferred $45.51 to the account on the same day under a false name.
At a hearing earlier this year at Liverpool Crown Court, Webster pleaded guilty to transferring $60.00 of her own money to the same group and to inviting Noor to make her own contribution. The two friends never met but, like Noor and her husband, knew each other through conversations on Telegram.
In messages, Webster described the group Noor’s husband fought for as Islamic State.
Amaani Noor and Victoria Webster knew or should have known that their donations may have been used to buy weapons and supplies for terrorists in Syria.
Webster and Noor are waiting for their sencences, and they will be sentenced on 20 December.
