Terrorism

Terrorism is defined in law as an act designed to influence the government or the public, where the use or threat is made for the purpose of advancing a political, religious, racial or ideological cause. Penalties for terrorism-related offences can be extremely severe, and many of the usual human rights safeguards are dis-applied in circumstances where the question of one’s involvement in terrorism has been raised. Terrorism powers are disproportionately used against those from BME and especially Muslim communities. 

 

We frequently represent clients in relation to terrorism-related decisions by the state and various public bodies, including:

  • Challenging deprivation of citizenship or withdrawal of passport facilities

  • Challenging misuse of counter-terrorism powers, including unlawful discrimination on grounds of race or religion

  • Challenging restrictive prevention and investigation measures

  • Challenging seizure of property or funds

  • Challenging misuse of counter-terrorism powers to stifle freedom of protest or lawful political debate

 

Our specialist Criminal Defence lawyers can provide advice and representation in relation to criminal proceedings such as charges of:

  • Being a member of a proscribed organisation

  • Preparing, or assisting another to prepare, for an act of terrorism

  • Incitement or glorifying an act of terrorism

  • Dissemination of terrorist publications or possession of terrorist information

  • Involvement with terrorist training

  • Funding offences

  • Conspiracy and other inchoate offences

 

Why Choose Us?

Our firm is highly experienced in handling complex and politically sensitive cases. Both our crime and public law departments are overseen by Imran Khan QC, who appears regularly in the senior courts in relation to terrorism cases. With terrorism law experts in both our civil and criminal departments, we are able to form a joined up approach, from initial advice upon arrest and representation at trial through to advice on potential claims against the police.

 

Some examples of cases we have been instructed on include:

  • We represented NJ, TD and OB, all of whom have close family members that are detained abroad and have had their citizenship rights withdrawn.

  • We represented SC, who was shot by police during their arrest for terrorism offences

  • We assisted AX, who needed advice and assistance in relation to negotiating their return to the UK following arrest en route to humanitarian work on the Syrian border

  • We assisted ND in challenging a decision to withdraw passport facilities on the basis that the Home Secretary considered they might attempt to join a proscribed group abroad

  • We provided advocacy for AA, who was charged with possession of terrorism material and engaging in conduct in preparation for terrorist acts

  • We provided advocacy for MA, who was charged with failing to disclose information in relation to terrorism

 

Owing to our reputation as a leading firm in this field, we regularly act for clients in London, across the UK and overseas. We are able to act in these cases on either a Legal Aid or privately funded basis.
