Choudary trained as a lawyer and described himself as a student of Omar Bakri Mohammed, an extremist who fled Britain in 2005. He was a key figure in al-Muhajiroun, which was banned under terrorism legislation and relaunched itself as al-Ghurabaa, only to be banned again. Successor groups were also banned, including Islam4UK and Muslims Against Crusades. Choudary’s barrister, Mark Summers QC, said his client regretted breaking the law. Summers urged the judge, Mr Justice Holroyde, not to sentence Choudary on the basis of his 20 years of notoriety, or over claims that he had indoctrinated “a generation of people to commit direct acts of terrorism”. He said: “Mr Choudary has done his best to stay within the law, acting on the boundaries of it maybe, but determined to stay within the law.”

Now the legal aid agency, which refuses support for British families and many British people who face civil actions funded by the Police and other government organisations, and even criminal charges has granted a whopping £250,000 in legal aid to fight deportation. A terrorist described as the "very model of a modern Al Qaeda terrorist" has won £250,000 in legal aid to fight deportation. The extremist was caught with manuals on attacking nightclubs and airports, but has reportedly been given taxpayer funds to try to stay in the country.

Is the legal aid agency funding terrorism?  

s.15 of the Terrorism Act 2000 says the following

(1)A person commits an offence if he—

(a)invites another to provide money or other property, and

(b)intends that it should be used, or has reasonable cause to suspect that it may be used, for the purposes of terrorism.

(2)A person commits an offence if he—

(a)receives money or other property, and

(b)intends that it should be used, or has reasonable cause to suspect that it may be used, for the purposes of terrorism.

(3)A person commits an offence if he—

(a)provides money or other property, and

(b)knows or has reasonable cause to suspect that it will or may be used for the purposes of terrorism.

(4)In this section a reference to the provision of money or other property is a reference to its being given, lent or otherwise made available, whether or not for consideration.  

s.17 of the Act says the following  

A person commits an offence if—

(a)he enters into or becomes concerned in an arrangement as a result of which money or other property is made available or is to be made available to another, and

(b)he knows or has reasonable cause to suspect that it will or may be used for the purposes of terrorism.  

Sign the petition if you think that terrorists should be deported and denied state funding, which assists these terrorists in committing or instigating further attacks.
