Oxford University worker suspended due to alleged links with Islamic terrorism

AN OXFORD University employee has been suspended from work after material emerged online showing he had links to Islamic terrorism, the Oxford Mail can reveal.

The action has been taken after the university was told the non-academic worker, who cannot be named for legal reasons, had been arrested for terrorism offences and detained in Italy five years ago.

It was alleged the worker was involved in spreading extremist material, although he denied committing an offence, and spent two-and-a-half years in a number of prisons.
