July 23, 2018

According to The Telegraph:

Husnain Rashid, of Nelson, Lancashire, had maintained his innocence throughout proceedings at Woolwich Crown Court, but dramatically changed his plea at the end of the prosecution opening and admitted a string of terror offences.

The 32-year-old used a Telegram chat group to call on supporters on October 13 to target the four-year-old heir to the throne…

Sentencing him, Judge Andrew Lees said: “The message was clear – you were providing the name and address of Prince George’s school…and the instruction or threat that Prince George and other members of the royal family should be viewed as potential targets.”
