ARE YOU AL QAEDA? NO COMMENT!; TERROR TRIAL TOLD OF QUIZ

(Daily Record) TERROR suspect Mohammed Atif Siddique said “no comment” when asked if he was an al-Qaeda member, a jury heard yesterday.

He gave the same response when police asked if he knew who Osama bin Laden was, the High Court in Glasgow was told.

Siddique, 21, of Alva, Clackmannanshire, denies possessing terrorist items and threatening to become a suicide bomber.

The accused told police he had looked at extremist Islamist websites but said he only did so for research. He claimed: “I wanted to see what these type of people think.”

Detective Sergeant Stuart Allan, 35, told the court he asked Siddique if he approved of the 9/11 attacks. The suspect replied: “No, Muslims died in it as well.”

Later, Siddique was asked: “Are you interested in Jihad?” He replied: “Not when they want to kill civilians.”

Siddique denies possessing articles in circumstances which gave rise to a reasonable suspicion that they were connected with the commission, preparation or instigation of an act of terrorism.

He also denies collecting items and information likely to be useful to a terrorist.

Siddique denies breaching the peace by showing students images of suicide bombers and terrorist beheadings, threatening to become a suicide bomber and claiming to be a member of al-Qaeda.

He further denies giving firearms and explosives instruction online and distributing terrorist publications on the web to encourage terrorist acts. The trial continues.
