Terrorism is a concerning issue that has caused nothing but devastation to people across the world.

Thankfully, Thames Valley Police, as well as other police forces across the country, have thwarted potential devastation, and they are currently working tirelessly in helping to keep our communities safe.

However, some terrorists have not been stopped in time, with some having links to Buckinghamshire.

Here are five alleged or convicted terrorists with links to the county.

Number 5: Jacek Tchorzewski: High Wycombe

Tchorzewski, was jailed in September 2019 at the age of 18 for several right-wing terror offences, before he was sentenced again in July 2020 for possessing indecent images of children.

This comes after he was caught with a range of documents for planning an attack, when his devices were seized at Luton Airport on February 20, 2019.

The Metropolitan Police also revealed that, as well as a number of documents breaching the Terrorism Act 2000, he was also found to be in possession of indecent images.

The investigation found that Tchorzewski, who was from Poland but reside in High Wycombe, had downloaded right-wing material which praised Hitler and Satanism, and he had amassed guides on terrorism, bomb-making and gun production.

There were also 12 indecent images on his phone, with four of the images being classified as Category A (the most serious type) whilst the further eight were classified Category B and C, the force said.

Whilst he was waiting to be sentenced for the terrorist acts two years ago, a ‘chilling’ handwritten note was found in his prison cell which read: "Let's fill our hearts with terror. And London's streets with blood."

He is still behind bars.

Number 4: Bilal Abdullah: Aylesbury

A qualified doctor who was born in Aylesbury, Abdullah worked at the Royal Alexandra Hospital in Paisley, Scotland.

He, along with Kafeel Ahmed, were attempting to cause terror in London on June 29, 2007, when they planted car bombs in the English capital, only for the explosives to be discovered and disabled by the authorities.

A day later on June 30, 2007, the two tried to ram a Jeep Cherokee filled with petrol cans and propane gas cylinders at around 30mph, into the departure area at Glasgow Airport.

However, their plan failed after they smashed into some concrete bollards outside the airport.

This prevented them from entering the airport in the vehicle, which had roughly 4,000 people inside.

As the car failed to explode, it was reported that Abdullah threw petrol bombs from the passenger seat whilst Ahmed doused himself in the liquid and set it alight.

Ahmed died in August 2007 as a result of the attack, suffering fatal burns that covered 90 per cent of the body, whilst Abdullah survived the incident.

Thankfully, no members of the public were killed in the attack, with there being only five injuries.

Abdullah was eventually sentenced to life behind bars, where he must serve a minimum of 32 years.

He was jailed in 2009 and remains incarcerated.

Number 3: Mohammed Saboor: High Wycombe

Saboor was jailed for 21 months in May 2015 after he was found guilty in providing equipment to terrorists associated with the Islamic State in Syria.

He agreed to send a pair of ballistic eyewear to be used on the battleground for terrorist purposes to Omar Hussain, another High Wycombe resident, who left the UK to fight in the Middle East.

During the trial which happened at the Old Bailey, it took jurors just 40 minutes to find him guilty of entering into a terrorist funding arrangement.

Saboor agreed to send over the goggles as Hussain, who was short-sighted and needed specially adapted glasses to correct his vision during an email exchange, the court was told.

In one email Saboor sent pictures of some glasses and said they were the ‘same as Kaffir's army’ - a reference to non-Islamic forces, the court heard.

Number 2: Germaine Lindsay: Aylesbury

One of the 7/7 bombers, Lindsay was 19-years-old when he and three others detonated bombs across London in July 2005.

Originally born in Jamaica, he lived in Dalton, West Yorkshire before moving to Aylesbury.

He lived on Northern Road, which is a short walk from the town centre, prior to the attack.

Lindsay along with Hasib Hussain, Mohammad Sidique Khan and Shehzad Tanweer, took the lives of 52 people in the capital when three bombs were set off at different locations on the London Underground within the space of 50 seconds, as well as an explosion on a double-decker bus in Tavistock Square.

Following the attack, Lindsay's house on Northern Road in Aylesbury was the scene of an arson attack, in what was described as an act of ‘retribution’.

In December of that year, Gerry Simmonds and Matthew Siever, both 17 at the time, pleaded guilty at Aylesbury Crown Court to setting the house on fire, and were sentenced to a detention centre for their crimes.

Number 1: Samantha Lewthwaite, Aylesbury

One of the world’s most wanted criminals, Lewthwaite (AKA, the White Widow), was the wife of 7/7 bomber Germaine Lindsay.

She originally ‘condemned’ the attack on the capital which her husband, and three others organised, causing the deaths of 52 innocent people.

She has been accused of ‘masterminding’ other terror attacks after becoming a ‘key member of terror group Al-Shabaab’, according to reports from various press outlets.

Her current whereabouts is still unknown as she continues to evade the authorities.
