Judge says funding 'provides assistance' for 'terrorist acts'

There were a large number of police officers at the High Court in Glasgow, where the judge told Nasserdine Menni, who was sentenced to seven years in prison for funding terrorism:

Funding provides assistance for those who would carry out terrorist acts.The sentencing of the court must reflect the potential use.

Menni was convicted of giving money to Taimour Abdulwahab, who blew himself up in the Swedish capital on December 11 2010.

The court heard that Menni plans to appeal against his conviction.

His defence counsel said immigration authorities had said they would try to have him thrown out of the UK.
