A teenager has been convicted of terrorism offences following an investigation by the Met's Counter Terrorism Command.

Arbias Thaqi (09.12.99) from east London pleaded guilty on Friday, 16 February to six counts of dissemination of terrorist material under section 2 of the Terrorism Act (TACT) 2006, and two counts of possession of documents of a kind likely to be useful to a person committing or preparing an act of terrorism under section 58 TACT 2000.

He entered his pleas at Westminster Youth Court and has been released on bail until Monday, 23 April when a Newton Hearing is due to take place at the same court.

The offences all relate to the sharing and possession of Daesh-related material online.
