A man from east London appears in court today (Weds) on charges concerning terrorism.
Shehroz Iqbal, 29, is accused of contravening the 2006 Terrorism Act by “disseminating terrorist material”, according to Scotland Yard.
It follows a search at an address somewhere in east London by counter-terrorism officers. Police aren’t saying where.
Iqbal has been remanded to appear at Westminster Magistrates’ Court, after being arrested on Monday by detectives from the Met’s Counter Terrorism Command “on suspicion of disseminating terrorist material”.
He has been held under the Police and Criminal Evidence Act at an east London police station since then, before being formally charged.
