Parents of ISIS fighter in Britain convicted

“Jurors heard that in July 2015 Jack spoke about wanting to decapitate a former school friend on social media. Linus Doubtfire posted a picture on Facebook as he completed his Commando Artillery Course in the British Army. Jack then posted: ‘I would love to perform a martyrdom operation in this scene.’”

Jack Letts somehow got the idea that his new religion required him to commit treason and mass murder. His parents apparently didn’t care. But of course, authorities the world over also ignore the recurring phenomenon of converts to Islam turning to jihad violence.

“‘Jihadi Jack’ parents guilty of funding terrorism,” BBC, June 21, 2019:

The parents of a Muslim convert dubbed “Jihadi Jack” have been found guilty of funding terrorism.

John Letts, 58, and Sally Lane, 57, from Oxford, sent their son £223 in September 2015 while he was in Syria despite concerns he had joined Islamic State….

In March 2015, police warned the couple they risked prosecution if they sent their son money.

Then in September, Lane transferred money to an account in Lebanon after Jack Letts insisted it had “nothing to do with jihad”….

She added Letts and Lane were repeatedly told by “numerous police officers” not to send any money.

Jurors heard that in July 2015 Jack spoke about wanting to decapitate a former school friend on social media.

Linus Doubtfire posted a picture on Facebook as he completed his Commando Artillery Course in the British Army.

Input by Blitz:

While parents of Jihadi Jack have been convicted in Britain, a notorious criminal and ISIS-funder Md. Shahid Uddin Khan and his family are still living in the United Kingdom despite international media’s coverage on their illegal activities including fraud, forgery, money laundering, dealing in arms and funding Islamic State and other militancy groups. The Khans also are business associates of notorious terrorist Dawood Ibrahim’s D-Company, which is involved in transnational trafficking in drugs and weapons.

In 2009, Md. Shahid Uddin Khan, his wife Farjana Anjum along with their three daughters, Shehtaz Munasi Khan, Parisa Pinaz Khan and Zuman Fiza Khan had entered the United Kingdom by buying ‘Golden Visa’ under Visa Tier 1. They have laundered millions of dollars and the entire amount of their investment in Britain was dirty money.

On January 17, 2019, the Counter Terrorism and Transnational Crime unit of Bangladesh Police raided the residence of Khans in Dhaka and recovered huge volume of explosives, illegal weapons, counterfeit currency and jihadist materials. Subsequently, several cases were lodged against them. On May 25, 2019, British newspaper the Sunday Times had published an investigative report on the activities of this family. This influential newspaper had also exposed the secret connection between the Khans and British Tory Party MP Stephen Hammond.
