In recent years, anti-terrorism legislation has broadened and developed significantly through the enactment of the Terrorism Act 2000 (“TA 2000”) and Terrorism Act 2006 (“TA 2006”). One of the fundamental effects of these Acts is that an individual does not necessarily have to commit what would explicitly be perceived as an act of terrorism in order to be convicted of a terrorism offence. Planning, assisting and collecting information on how to commit acts of terrorism are all recognised as crimes under anti-terrorism legislation.
At Eldwick Law , We have extensive experience of a wide range of cases, including (but not limited to):
- Preparation of Terrorist Acts, under Section 5 of the TA 2006;
- Collecting Information, under Section 58 of the TA 2000;
- Dissemination of Terrorist Publications, under Section 2 of the TA 2006;
- Finance and Money Laundering in Relation to Terrorism, under Section 15-17 and Section 18 of the TA 2000;
- Membership of a Proscribed Organisation, under Section 11 of the TA 2000; and
- Supporting a Proscribed Organisation, under Section 12 of the TA 2000.
We understand that, given the extensive powers of the state, those facing allegations of terrorism will invariably find themselves under intense pressure and scrutiny. At Eldwick Law, we have a particular strength in providing expert strategic advice to diffuse and dilute the most serious of cases.
Our solicitors have acted on some of the most high-profile and complex terrorism cases, from representing those connected to the IRA in the 1990’s, to those arrested as part of the London Bridge attack in 2017. Our knowledge of the law is deep and contemporary.
