Police have warned people that they could face prosecution if they travel to fight in conflicts in warzones after four people were arrested on suspicion of terrorism offences.
Detective Chief Superintendent Tony Mole, Head of the North West Counter Terrorism Unit, reassured the public that the arrests were not linked to any imminent threats to the UK, adding:
First and foremost I should reassure everyone that none of today’s activity is linked in any way to any imminent threats in Greater Manchester or the UK.
The operation has been running since autumn 2013 since we first became aware of a number of individuals travelling from the North West to the battlefields of Syria.
We look at every case on its own merits, but travelling to a warzone in order to be involved in conflict, or supporting those who do so, could make you potentially liable to prosecution for terrorism offences.
Also, as well as posing a risk to themselves, there is the very real threat that they could pose a danger to our own communities when they return to the UK.
