A man from West Yorkshire who has allegedly committed offences linked with leftwing terrorism showed up at the Leeds magistrates court today.
Dominic Noble, a 32-year-old man from Huddersfield was taken to custody on suspicion of setting up an act of terrorism. The police arrested the man at his own residence last week on Tuesday.
He was charged with offences that add up to four-teen, including the possession of documents which are probably useful to someone pulling off or setting up an act of terrorism. According to the Counter-Terrorism Policing North East, Mr Noble`s arrest on the 2nd of June is part of an “intelligence-led investigation into suspected leftwing terrorism”.
A spokesman said: “Noble was arrested from his home address on Tuesday 2 June by Counter Terrorism Policing North East as part of an intelligence-led investigation into suspected leftwing terrorism.”
He stated that the charges against Dominic Noble were in contradiction with section 58 of the Terrorism Act 2000.
The thirteen charges were for possessing documents used by someone setting up or planning an act of terrorism. The 14th charge was for viewing or having access to a document which is possibly useful to someone setting up or planning an act of terrorism.
Noble was on pre-trial detention when he appeared at the Leeds magistrates court for a 30-minute hearing on Monday. The case was handed over to the Old Bailey in London for further hearing on the 26th of June.
