 Regina v Gul: [2012] EWCA Crim 280;  [2012] WLR (D)  44

“Acts by insurgents against the armed forces of a state anywhere in the world which sought to influence a government and were made for political purposes were acts of terrorism for the purposes of section 1 of the Terrorism Act 2000. There was nothing in international law which required the clear terms of the 2000 Act to be read down to exempt those committing such acts from the definition of terrorist in that Act.”
