Court of Appeal (Criminal Division)
The offence of possessing a document or record of information of a kind likely to be useful to a person committing or preparing an act of terrorism would be committed only if the document or record concerned was of a kind that was likely to provide practical assistance to a person committing or preparing an act of terrorism. A document that simply encouraged the commission of acts of terrorism was not sufficient.
