Gul (H) v Regina: CACD 31 Jul 2012

The defendant appealed against his conviction for conveying ‘List A’ articles into prison. He said that the proceedings had been a nullity for failure to comply with the requirements of Schedule 3 of the 1998 Act. He had not been notified of the possibility of making representations.
Held: The appeal failed. The definition of terrorism in section 1 of the Terrorism Act 2000 did operate so as to include within its scope any or all military attacks by a non-state armed group against any or all state or inter-governmental organisation armed forces in the context of a non-international armed conflict.
