“Jury discharged in terrorism book trial,” from ABC News, September 11 (thanks to Sylvia), September 11:
Belal Khazaal pleaded not guilty to two terrorism-related charges after producing a book published on the internet.
The court heard it had information on how to blow up planes and an assassination hit-list.
Khazaal’s lawyer argued he was the author of just a few paragraphs and that he compiled information that was available to anyone on the internet.
Yesterday a Supreme Court jury found the 38-year-old guilty of one charge – producing a book knowing it was connected with assisting a terrorist act.
But the jury has been unable to make a decision on the second charge of attempting to incite a terrorist act.
The Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) is yet to decide if Khazaal will face a re-trial on that second charge.
