Terror Act suspect 'had soldier's address'
A British-born man charged under the Terrorism Act after he was allegedly found in possession of the name and home address of a British soldier was remanded in custody today.
Abu Baker Mansha, who has just turned 21, appeared before Bow Street Magistrates' Court in central London this morning.
Mansha was charged last night under Section 58(1b) of the Terrorism Act which deals with the collection of information that could be useful to terrorists.
It is alleged he was found with a newspaper cutting referring to a decorated soldier and also personal details including that soldier's address.
Mansha, of Harold Wilson House, Arnott Close, Thamesmead, south-east London, spoke only to confirm his name, address and date of birth during today's brief hearing.
No application for bail was made on his behalf.
Mansha, who had a beard and close-cropped dark hair and wore a checked shirt and jeans, was remanded in custody for one week to reappear before the court on 5 April.
