Couple’s terror trial begins
Date published: 28 October 2008
AN Oldham couple accused of publishing a pamphlet encouraging terrorism went on trial at Manchester Crown Court today.
Amjad Mahmood (29), and his wife Shella Roma (28), of Chester Street, Werneth, deny circulating a document telling others to go abroad to fight a jihad or holy war.
They allegedly designed and printed the pamphlets and distributed them outside a mosque in Oldham.
The couple, who have a baby, face joint charges of dissemination of terrorist publications and encouragement of terrorism.
The charges cover the period between October last year and January and were brought under the Terrorism Act 2006.
