EWCA Crim 389
Convictions for belonging to a proscribed organisation were safe as where defendants were members of an organisation proscribed in the UK but not illegal in the country in which they joined the provisions of the Terrorism Act 2000 were applicable when the defendants entered the UK. The judge was right to admit documentary evidence found as a result of a search carried out under the statutory provisions as the search was proportionate and justified. The sentences of 30 months were manifestly excessive.
