Salford man pleads guilty to 16 terrorism charges

A Muslim convert from Salford has pleaded guilty to 16 terrorism charges.

Adam Wyatt admitted encouraging terrorism through online postings about jihad, disseminating terrorist publications and possessing e-copies of documents useful for terrorism.

Wyatt, 48, of Bridgewater Street, Salford, was remanded into custody following his guilty pleas at Manchester Crown Court on Monday.

He will be sentenced following a further hearing in April.

Wyatt admitted nine counts of encouragement of terrorism, including postings on a Google Plus account which said jihad was an “obligation” for Muslims.
