Man who encouraged attack on Prince George admits terrorism charges

An alleged supporter of the group accused of encouraging attacks on 4-year-old has changed his plea from innocent to guilty.

In a dramatic mid-trial reversal, Husnain Rashid pleaded guilty to three counts of engaging in conduct to prepare of terrorist acts, and one count of encouraging terrorism.

On October 13, he posted a photograph of the school superimposed with silhouettes of two masked terrorists on his online channel "Lone Mujahid".

Rashid appeared in court with a large beard, wearing a grey prison sweatshirt, glasses and a black prayer...

"You have admitted these allegations of encouraging others to commit terrorist activities and publishing statements to encourage the killing of others", Judge Andrew Lees told Rashid. He said a very lengthy prison sentence for Husnain was "inevitable" and a life sentence would be considered, according to PA.

Prosecutor Annabel Darlow told a jury that Rashid encouraged attacks on a range of targets, including soccer stadiums, British Army bases, shopping centres, Jewish communities.

The 32-year-old admitted using a Telegram chat group to urge supporters to call for action against the four-year-old prince a month after he started at Thomas's Battersea, in south-west London. And if that's not chilling enough, he wrote, "even the royal family will not be left alone".

He added: "School starts early".

He was also said to have prepared acts of terrorism between 28 January 2017 and 23 November 2017 by "messaging individuals he believed to be in ISIS territory, seeking advice about routes to travel to Syria, saving money in order to travel, purchasing equipment, and seeking to obtain tazkiyah (a sponsor), to join ISIS".

The news of the threats against Prince George were first reported last October by British media outlets. He was arrested in November and, until now, he had maintained his innocence.

Rashid will be sentenced at Woolwich Crown Court on June 28th, Judge Lees said.

This allegedly included a recipe for the poison ricin from the Islamist propaganda magazine Inspire, how to make Molotov cocktails and napalm and a suggestion of poisoning supermarket ice creams.
