Case Details

A Salford man, who posted contents from a terrorist’s handbook on social media and encouraged attacks in Britain, has been jailed.

Adam Wyatt posted contents from a terrorist’s handbook on social media, potentially putting others’ lives at risk by encouraging attacks in Britain with phrases such as, ‘Britain must atone for its sins in Palestine’ and that jihad was an obligation for Muslims.


After pleading guilty to owning and sharing terrorist material, Wyatt was sentenced to three years and nine months at Manchester Crown Court with the judge calling Wyatt’s actions intentional and charging him with nine counts of encouragement of terrorism.
