Anything ”for the brothers”
To bad the piece of crap didn’t join them and never make it back to the UK.
Former British champion boxer ‘tried to smuggle jihadists out of the UK and into Islamic State war zone in back of lorry’
- Muslim convert Anthony Small, 33, was arrested in a dramatic dawn swoop
- Detectives believe he is linked to a failed plot to sneak two men through Dover so they could travel to Syria and fight for Islamic State
- Small held British and Commonwealth light middleweight titles
A former British boxing champion is suspected of trying to smuggle jihadists bound for Syria out of Britain in the back of a lorry.
Muslim convert Anthony Small, 33, was arrested in a dramatic dawn swoop yesterday by counter-terrorism detectives.
They believe he is linked to a failed plot to sneak two men through Dover so they could travel to Syria and fight for Islamic State.
Small, who calls himself Abdul Haqq, is an outspoken supporter of Anjem Choudary and has posted provocative videos online.
Choudary and nine others were arrested in September during a crackdown on the notorious hate preacher’s inner circle.
Their passports were confiscated in a bid to stop them leaving the country. But some of them are now suspected of attempting to flee through the same underworld channels used by illegal immigrants.
The two men found hidden in the lorry were sitting alongside more than a dozen migrants and an Eastern European accused of acting as a fixer.
They were arrested at gunpoint following the discovery of the vehicle on Sunday.
Small and a second man, aged 40, were arrested at their homes in South East London yesterday.
The former boxer was held on suspicion of preparing acts of terrorism while the second man was held on suspicion of conspiracy to possess and supply fraudulent documents.
Three other men were arrested in separate operations in East London and at the port of Dover.
