A girl has been sentenced to 30 months imprisonment for perverting the course of justice after losing police time and sources.
Bushra Ali, of Alexandra Road, Reading, Berkshire pleaded responsible to the prices at Reading Crown Court yesterday (29/9) and was sentenced the similar day.
The 38-year-old despatched a sequence of handwritten letters and photographs to Thames Valley Police premises and Government buildings between 9 December 2019 and 19 December 2019.
Within these letters she falsely accused someone of being a terrorist and planning a terrorist attack around the Christmas period of 2019.
The intention behind the malicious letters was to impress a police response and investigation into the meant goal of Ali, which might, she hoped, in the end result in their arrest.
A risk of this nature is taken very critically and a full and thorough investigation was carried out which discovered the letters to be malicious towards particular person fairly than a risk.
A major quantity of time and sources have been spent by varied forensic groups, together with Counter Terrorism Policing South East, to determine the one that wrote the letters and the proof led again to Ali.
Detective Sergeant Andy Beeney from Thames Valley Police stated: “Ali used a private vendetta to pervert the course of justice.
“She wrote a number of letters, the first of which, she sent just ten days after the tragic terrorist attack in Fishmongers Hall, by London Bridge on 29 November 2019. This was intentional and Ali even accused the victim of her letters of being a friend and close associate of the terrorist who carried out the Fishmongers Hall attack.”
He added: “Ali wasted a important quantity of police time and sources and it’s only proper that she has been delivered to justice for this distinct lack of respect for the time of police and its companions.
“Reports of this nature are taken very seriously and rightly so, however if you are found to be knowingly and maliciously wasting police time we will not hesitate to bring you before the courts.”
