Jury unable to reach verdict in trial of Maidenhead man accused of encouraging Islamic State support

A jury has been unable to reach a verdict in the case of an alleged terrorist sympathiser from Maidenhead.

Mohammed Choudry, 22, of Laggan Road, had been accused of making in a speech in Luton last year in which he encouraged support for Islamic State.

His trial at London’s Old Bailey, at which he appeared alongside four other men, started in June.

The defendants had denied all the accusations against them.

Update Wednesday, August 17:

This morning it has been confirmed that guilty verdicts were returned for six counts facing three of the defendants.

However, jurors were unable to agree a decision on Choudry and a fifth defendant, who are now scheduled to face a re-trial in November, which is expected to last four weeks.

The other three men are to be sentenced at the conclusion of the re-trial.
