A London teenager has been charged with six counts of spreading terrorist material.
According to the Met’s Counter Terrorism Command, Ilyas Jelloul was arrested on Friday at an address in east London. He was charged on Saturday for violating Section 2 of the Terrorism Act 2006.
The Metropolitan Police have said the 19-year-old will appear at Westminster Magistrates’ Court on Monday.
In a statement issued on the day of Mr Jelloul’s arrest, Met Commander Richard Smith urged the public not to hesitate to report information to police about potential terrorist perpetrators, saying it “could well save”.
“Every day, teams from the Met and Counter Terrorist Policing conduct proactive investigations at the national level to identify and target those we suspect of involvement in terrorism,” he said.
“We want the public to be our extra eyes and ears and I would encourage anyone who has information that can assist counter-terrorism police to call us into confidence and share the information.
“Your call won’t ruin lives, but may well save them.”
