Man denies charges of terrorism

A Derby man has appeared in court charged with 10 counts under the terrorism act.

Krenar Lusha, 30, of Moore Street, Normanton, appeared at Preston Crown Court. He was arrested in August 2008 at his home.

He denies 10 counts under Section 57 of the Terrorism Act 2000.

The jury has been told that he possessed numerous articles which police believe might have been used for an act of terrorism.

Mr Lusha, a factory worker, is accused of possessing seven documents, including a Hezbollah military instruction manual on how to make a suicide bomb belt and the Mujahideen Explosives Handbook.

He is also accused of possessing 2kg (4.4lb) of potassium nitrate and 71 litres (15.6 gallons) of petrol after police visited his home in August last year.

If convicted, he faces a maximum penalty of 15 years in prison.

The trial is expected to last up to four weeks.
