Portsmouth restaurant worker accused of terror charge admits he lied to police

A PORTSMOUTH restaurant worker accused of helping others to fight a jihad in Syria has told a court ‘every Muslim wants to see the creation of an Islamic State’.

Mustakim Jaman, 23, is accused alongside his brother Tuhin Shahensha, 27, of being part of a group of extremists from Portsmouth who supported using serious violence to create an Islamic state.

Their brother, Ifthekar Jaman travelled to Syria in May 2013 where he fought and was killed.

The pair, of Hudson Road, Southsea, allegedly exchanged messages with like-minded men using Whatsapp and Kik, secretly planning and arranging travel from the UK towards Syria.
