Terrorism Financing: Verdict Postponed For The Golamaully Couple

There was no judge available at Old Bailey High Criminal Court. It is for this reason that the sentence of Mohammed and Nazimabee Golamaully, scheduled for Thursday 10th November has been postponed until 17th November.


This Mauritian couple, based in London is accused of sending money to their nephew, a Vacoassian who became a jihadist in Syria. They admitted the facts alleged against them. They risk up to 14 years in prison for violating Article 15 of the Terrorism Act.

It was in 2014 that the couple made cash transfers totaling Rs 9,800 via the Western Union and an intermediary based in Turkey for the benefit of 27 year old Zafirr Golamaully, a fresh recruit Of the Islamic State.

The couple was unmasked in 2015 as part of a survey by the National Terrorism Financial Investigation Unit on a global terrorist financing network. They were found guilty at the hearing on 3rd October. The lawyer of the couple pleaded clemency saying that the sum sent is derisory.
