Air terror 'plot': Three face court
Press Association | September 19, 2006
Three people charged in connection with the alleged airliner bomb plot are due to appear in court.
Young mother Cossor Ali and brothers Mehran and Umair Hussain are accused of failing to disclose information about suspects in the case.
They will appear at City of Westminster Magistrates Court in central London for an expected committal hearing.
A 17-year-old youth arrested in connection with the alleged plot is also due to appear on an unrelated terrorism charge.
Ali, 24, of Walthamstow, east London, who has an eight-month-old baby, is accused of failing to disclose information about her husband, Ahmed Abdullah Ali. He is one of 11 men charged with conspiracy to murder and preparing an act of terrorism in relation to the alleged plot.
A further two men are accused of the second offence only.
All 13 appeared at the Old Bailey via videolink earlier this week.
Mehran Hussain, 23, and his brother Umair, 24, both of Chingford, east London, are charged with failing to disclose information about their brother Nabeel.
Nabeel is also one of those accused of conspiracy to murder and preparing an act of terrorism. The alleged plot was to smuggle improvised explosive devices on to transatlantic passenger jets and then assemble and detonate them on board.
The 17-year-old, who cannot be named for legal reasons, is accused of an offence under the Terrorism Act 2000. The charge alleges that he had a book on improvised explosive devices, a map of Afghanistan and some suicide wills from people prepared to commit terrorist acts.
