R v ABDUL SHERIF & 5 ORS (2008)

PUBLISHED November 21, 2008

[2008] EWCA Crim 2653

The appeals of five offenders charged under the Terrorism Act 2000 s.38B and the Criminal Law Act 1967 s.4(1) for offences related to the failure to disclose information that they had prior to the intended bombings on the London transport system on July 21, 2005 and of assisting an offender were allowed and their sentences reduced accordingly. The sixth offender's appeal was dismissed as her sentence had more than adequately reflected all of the mitigation available to her.
