Breitbart London are reporting that the Manchester Arena bomber, who maimed and murdered many, including women and children and an Ariana Grande concert used government benefits awarded to his mother to purchase bomb-making equipment. These revelations were told to a jury at the Old Bailey in London. The trial at the Old Bailey is for the Manchester bomber’s brother, Hashem Abedi.
The court has heard that the pair’s mother who is called Samia Abedi was in receipt of over £2,000 a month in government benefits. In addition to this, her bank card was used to purchase an industrial battery as well as other bomb-making equipment. The court also heard that the Jihadi’s mother continued to receive the welfare payments even after she had left the United Kingdom for Libya. Ms Abedi’s bank card was still in use in the UK following her departure regular cash withdrawals occurred with one of the purchases made with the card was a £300 200-amp battery purchased from a store in Salford, Manchester.
The bomber himself Salman Abedi, received £3,260 in January of 2017 from the Student Loans Company. The jihadist reported that he had lost his bank card and reported fraud after a series of £790, £710, £800, and £700 withdrawals were made on the 23rd of January. The jury in the case also heard from Alharth Forjani, the cousin of the Abedi’s had helped Hashem purchase a chemical used in making explosives from Amazon, saying that “I trusted him”. Hashem Abedi, the brother of the suicide bomber, has denied any involvement in the terrorist attack which 22 people killed as well as hundreds more being left injured.
The prosecutor in the case has said “The surviving brother is just as responsible for the crimes which resulted in so much death, serious injury and damage following the detonation of the bomb on the 22 May 2017 as his brother. The defendant through his conduct encouraged and assisted his brother Salman to carry out the attack,” The trial of Hashem Abedi continues and UNN will bring you more as we get it.
