Terror fundraising suspect released on bail
AN Oxford man arrested yesterday on suspicion of fundraising for terrorism has been released on bail.
Officers swooped on an address in the city and arrested the 23-year-old suspicion of fundraising for the purposes of terrorism, contrary to Section 15 of The Terrorism Act 2000, and on suspicion of failing to disclose information in order to make a gain, contrary to Section 3 of the Fraud Act 2006.
The man, from Oxford, was questioned by officers from the South East Counter Terrorism Unit at a police station in the Thames Valley Area.
Thames Valley Police said there was no perceived threat to the local community, and the arrest related to the investigation of activity overseas.
A fixed bail date was not given but he is due to report back to police in mid-April.
