East London and West Essex Guardian Series: Ibrahim Abdullah-Hassan admitted posting links of a speech by Al Qaeda extremist Anwar al-Awlaki Ibrahim Abdullah-Hassan admitted posting links of a speech by Al Qaeda extremist Anwar al-Awlaki

The sentencing of two men convicted of terror offences has been adjourned.

Ibrahim Abdullah-Hassan, 28, of Carr Road in Walthamstow and Shah Jalal Hussain, 31, of Cannon Street Road, in Whitechapel admitted encouraging terrorism and disseminating terrorist material at the Old Bailey on March 24.

The pair previously denied publishing lectures calling for a holy war against the West but changed their plea at the last available chance.

Abdullah-Hassan and Hussain posted a link on their website of an extremist speech by senior Al Qaeda recruiter Anwar al-Awlaki.

The 28 year old also known as Abu Nusaybah was arrested following an interview on BBC Newsnight in which he claimed his friend Adebolajo had been offered a job by MI5.

In February, Adebolajo, 29, was handed a 45-year minimum term for murdering Lee Rigby in a Woolwich street in May 2013.

The men were due to be sentenced today but will now appear at the Old Bailey on May 9.
