There were 10 charges of soliciting murder under section four of the Offences Against the Person Act (1861). In each, Hamza was accused of soliciting others to murder non-believers at public meetings. Several of the charges specified that Hamza had encouraged others to murder Jews. He also faces four charges under the Public Order Act 1986 of “using threatening, abusive or insulting words or behavior with the intention of stirring up racial hatred.”Full Story
