Radical Stoke-on-Trent preacher Kamran Hussain is due to be sentenced later today after being convicted of supporting the Islamic State terror group and encouraging terrorism. The 40-year-old will learn his fate at the Old Bailey after a jury found him guilty of eight terror-related charges.
The prosecution was brought after an undercover law enforcement officer recorded the imam’s radical sermons from a mosque in High Street, Tunstall, over a four-month period last year. Hussain, of Knightsbridge Way, Tunstall, told children that martyrdom was better than anything they would achieve at school, encouraged terrorism and supported the terror group in Syria.
