A man from Hampshire has appeared in court charged with a terrorism offence.

Officers from the South East Counter Terrorism Unit charged the 30-year-old with an offence under Section 5 of the Terrorism Act 2006 relating to the preparation of terrorist acts.

Mashudur Rahman Choudhury from Hampshire was arrested at Gatwick Airport on Saturday 26 October 2013 on suspicion of the commission, preparation and instigation of acts of terrorism.
 
He went before Westminster Magistrates’ Court on Saturday 2 November, and was remanded in custody until an appearance at the Old Bailey in London on 18 November 2013.
 
Hampshire Constabulary’s Chief Inspector Beth Pirie said:

“The charge relates to activity overseas and there is no perceived threat to the local community.

"Anyone in our local communities with concerns about this situation can contact Hampshire Constabulary on 101 and ask to speak to a specialist Prevent officer."

Police said that the Prevent strategy explains the work that Hampshire Constabulary and local authorities do working with partner agencies and the public to stop people from becoming or supporting terrorists.

"It also explains how the public can help us build stronger, safer communities who can reject terrorism in all its forms," said a spokesman.

Members of the public can email prevent.engagement@hampshire.pnn.police.uk.
