Uber Driver Convicted in Islamic Terror Plot

He even boasted how he had hoodwinked the jury in a previous terror trial. Perhaps it is time those in power stop telling the public “It is a religion of peace,” so further errors of justice do not occur.

A former Uber driver has been found guilty of planning terrorist attacks at London hotspots just one year after he was cleared of a sword attack on police outside Buckingham Palace.

Mohiussunnath Chowdhury was today convicted at Woolwich Crown Court.

The 28-year-old allegedly boasted to undercover police how he had deceived a jury into finding him not guilty of the attack.

Chowdhury from Luton was ‘motivated by dreams of martyrdom for the cause of Islam, and inspired by preachers of hate’, a jury at Woolwich Crown Court was previously told.

Chowdhury had also allegedly sketched a picture of a man shooting at 10 Downing Street

Chowdhury, who worked in a chicken shop was unwittingly confiding his plans to undercover police posing as like-minded extremists who had him under surveillance during a five-month operation.

Preparing for his atrocity, he lifted weights, practised stabbing and rehearsed beheading techniques as well as booking shooting range training and trying to acquire a real gun, his trial at Woolwich Crown Court heard.

Chowdhury, who was cleared in December 2018 of slashing police with a sword outside the Queen’s London residence while shouting ‘Allahu Akbar’, had bragged about deceiving the jury in that trial.

He remained emotionless as jurors found him guilty of engaging in conduct in preparation of terrorist acts, collecting information likely to be useful to someone preparing an act of terrorism and disseminating terrorist publications.

The second charge related to a document titled ‘guidance for doing just terror operations’ on his phone which included instructions on how to kill people with knives.

His sister Sneha Chowdhury, 25, cried as she was convicted of one count of failing to disclose information about acts of terrorism and cleared of another count of the same charge.

Jurors deliberated for eight hours and 39 minutes before returning their verdicts this afternoon.
