Tarek Namouz Wiki – Tarek Namouz biography

A convicted rapist who became radicalized in prison used Covid-19 business loans to send more than £25,000 ($29,808) to ISIS. London hairdresser Tarek Namouz, 43, sent the money to his friend who was fighting for ISIS in his homeland of Syria.

On Thursday, he was jailed for 12 years.

A Metropolitan Police investigation found that he had claimed the loans from London’s Hammersmith and Fulham Council and transferred them to a school friend.


He was arrested in May 2021 in an operation by anti-terrorist agents. Namouz was found guilty at Kingston Crown Court in December of providing money to terrorism and possessing information useful to terrorism.

Judge Peter Lodder KC told Namouz that he had shown a “commitment to terrorism” and that he planned to “re-establish a state government in accordance with extreme Islamic principles”.

“In 2020 and 2021 you were running a barbershop in Hammersmith,” he said. “He was entitled to Covid recovery loans that were paid to him by the local council.


“You sent that money and other money, via a money transfer and exchange in west London, to terrorists in Syria.” Namouz interrupted the judge from the bench, claiming “I never sent that money.” But after he was sentenced, he said, “Thank you, your honor.”

But in another outburst in the courtroom before he was taken to the cells, he turned to the police officers sitting in the courtroom and said: “May Allah destroy them. We will meet on judgment day. You are a kafir [non-believer] and you will end up in hell.”

He had been sending the funds through a money transfer office in west London. Detectives found transaction records totaling £11,280.


However, while he was in remand, he was recorded telling a visitor he had come to see him in prison that he had sent more than double that amount, some £25,000.

When officers visited the Namouz apartment to arrest him on May 25, 2021, he told officers that he did not have a phone. But during the search, detectives found one hidden in an alcove under a drawer.

On the phone, the agents found Daesh propaganda material consisting of thousands of videos, messages and documents that he had downloaded from Telegram.


This included two videos, one of which gave instructions on how to create an improvised explosive device and another which detailed how to carry out knife attacks.

Namouz originally came to Britain as a student and applied for asylum in 1996. He was jailed for rape in 2014 and is believed to have radicalized in prison.

Commander Richard Smith, who heads the Met’s Counter-Terrorism Command, said: “Terrorist groups depend on funding to carry out their activities and continue to operate.


“People like Namouz who provide money to terrorist groups, both in the UK and abroad, are allowing others to go and commit serious and deadly attacks, and we will always pursue and investigate those people and seek to bring them to justice.”Read More….
