General Info:
Wissam Tariq Mahmoud Ziad is a man from Manchester who positioned himself as a religious authority and encouraged support for the Islamic State terrorist organisation.

Ziad possessed a colossal amount of extremist material capable of encouraging terrorism, and used social media and chat groups to communicate with people all over the world, using VPNs to hide his identity while online.

He first came to the attention of Counter Terror officers when an acquaintance was stopped at Stansted Airport in September 2019.

The examination of a seized mobile phone contained links to Islamic extremist material from a chat group called Roma Pizza administered by Ziad.

The conversations ranged from general chat to the sharing of terrorist material and views about the Islamic State terrorist group.

Ziad was arrested by the authorities in May 2020 and his phone and computer seized.

An examination of the devices revealed he was active in group chats and private chats, and was the admin for several groups.

His electronic devices also contained a colossal number of files containing propaganda material supporting extremist groups.

Ziad used the groups to share his extremist beliefs and disseminate material with people in the United Kingdom and around the world.

He was re-arrested on Tuesday 15 June 2021 when police attended his address in Levenshulme and he later admitted eight charges under the Terrorism Act legislation.

Ziad admitted eight charges under the Terrorism Act 2000 and the Terrorism Act 2006 including: 6 x Dissemination of Terrorist Publications, 1 x Encouragement of Terrorism and 1 x Support of a Proscribed Organisation.
