Two Arrested On Suspicion Of Syria Related Terrorism Offences In Coventry

    Officers from the West Midlands Counter Terrorism Unit have today (3 August) arrested two men at separate addresses in Coventry on suspicion of Syria related terrorism offences.

    The men, aged 38 and 40, were detained under s.15 of the Terrorism Act 2000 on suspicion of financing terrorism. 

    Officers are this morning continuing to carry out searches at the addresses.

    The arrests were part of an on-going investigation and intelligence led; there was no immediate threat to public safety.

    Both men will be dealt with under PACE legislation, meaning officers have an initial 24 hours to question them before charging, releasing or applying for a warrant of further detention.
