UK: PC Amar Hussain guilty of bogus ISIS kidnap alert

A PC who falsely claimed a fellow officer was going to be kidnapped by terrorists has been convicted of perverting the course of justice.

Amar Hussain, 29, was involved in a hoax 999 call claiming an officer would be kidnapped by a radical Muslim with links to so-called Islamic State.

The call led to West Midlands Police putting in “unprecedented” measures to check officers’ safety, jurors heard.

At Stafford Crown Court, two other men were convicted of the same charges.
