Teen charged with terrorism offences
A 19-year-old man will appear before Westminster Magistrates tomorrow (14 February) charged with a terrorism offence.
Samuel Newey, from Solihull, was arrested last Friday (7 February) and charged today (13 February).
He is charged as follows:
Between 1 November and 7 November 2019, within the jurisdiction of the Central Criminal Court, Samuel Thomas Francis Newey, with the intention of assisting Daniel Newey to commit, prepare or instigate an act of terrorism, engaged in conduct in preparation for giving effect to his intention.

He will appear alongside 49-year-old Paul Newey who is charged with funding terrorism.
Every year thousands of reports from the public help police tackle the terrorist threat. If you see or hear something that doesn’t seem right, trust your instincts and ACT by reporting to police in confidence at gov.uk/ACT.
Reporting won’t ruin lives, but it could save them. Action Counters Terrorism. Remember, in an emergency, always dial 999.
