Radical UK cleric ANJEM CHOUDARY has been convicted for inviting others to support the so-called Islamic State group.
CHOUDARY, 49, drummed up support for the militant group in a series of talks posted on YouTube, the Old Bailey heard.
He was convicted alongside his confidant, MOHAMMED MIZANUR RAHMAN.
The Met Police said many people tried for serious offences “attended lectures or speeches given by them”.
Counter-terrorism chiefs have spent almost 20 years trying to bring Choudary, a father of five, to trial, blaming him, and the proscribed organisations which he helped to run, for radicalizing young men and women.
