Man wrongly accused of terrorism cleared by High Wycombe lawyer

A man wrongly accused of being a terrorist has finally found justice thanks to the hard work of a High Wycombe solicitor.

Bilal Tanveer, a lawyer at Morgan Has, was part of the legal team representing a Belgian in his 40s accused of having participated in terrorist training.

The Bucks Free Press chose not to release the man’s name.

The man had been accused of participating in terrorist training and being part of a terrorist organization when he was photographed at a camp of the Partiya Karkeren Kurdistani (PKK), which translates to the Kurdistan Workers’ Party.

The PKK is on the UK government’s list of banned terrorist groups.

Authorities believed the man had been involved in terrorism-related activities at the camp, but the reality was that he was there on behalf of the Kurdistan National Congress (KNK) – a non-violent organization – and was involved in talks of peace.
