An Algerian national who was found guilty of funding terrorism following a suicide bombing in Stockholm has been sentenced to seven years in prison.
Nasserdine Menni was convicted of transferring money to Taimour Abdulwahab, who later blew himself up in the Swedish capital on December 11 2010.
He sent a total of £5,725 to a bank account in Abdulwahab’s name in the knowledge that it could be used for terrorism purposes.
Menni, whose age is not known, was also convicted of immigration and benefit fraud.
However, he was cleared of a charge which alleged he conspired to murder members of the Swedish public when a jury found it not proven after a 12-week trial at the High Court in Glasgow.
At the same court today Judge Lord Matthews jailed Menni for seven years.
