£200,000 Longsight Manchester House Up For Public Auction Soon

Recommended Posts


The family of a grandfather convicted of attempting to recruit two undercover police officers for jihad in Afghanistan face losing their £200,000 home under anti-terrorism laws.

Former Taliban fighter Munir Farooqi, 56, was given four life sentences in September 2011 for running a 'recruitment centre' for home-grown extremists to go to Afghanistan to kill British troops.


The family of a grandfather convicted of attempting to recruit two undercover police officers to fight for the Taliban have spoken of their "torture" as they face the prospect of becoming the first in Britain to have their home seized by the courts under anti-terrorism laws.

Same story 2 different papers..... The Mail never fails to disappoint does it.... :rolleyes:

Over and above this.... An interesting case... Could set a significant precedent in UK case law.....

The convicted fella tried to recruit jihaddists at the address. Should the UK courts be able to seize it under Proceeds of Crime?

Maybe this bit will assist you in reaching a decision?

Mrs Farooqi, 49, said the family were devastated by her husband's conviction and were now worried they would be split up if the £200,000 house were seized. She said they also face losing two other properties, which form the basis of a family lettings business, to cover legal costs.

Still got any sympathy? :ph34r:
