January 2003

Seven North African Muslims were arrested on Wednesday 18th December after raids at addresses in Edinburgh and London, under the Terrorism Act 2000. Media reports stated that the security sources said they were being held on suspicion of Islamic-related terrorist activity, and were accused of being involved in fund-raising and logistical support. They are suspected of being loosely connected to a network associated with al-Qa'eda, although police said there was no evidence that a terrorist attack was being planned in Scotland, or that any UK event was being targeted.

The men made a second appearance at the Edinburgh Sheriff Court on 2nd January 2003 and were remanded in custody.,3604,862428,00.html
