‘Total fantasist’ jailed for posting beheading videos on FacebookLondon, Jan. 19 : A `total fantasist' who posted gruesome videos on Facebook of al-Qaeda operatives beheading captives has been jailed for five years in Britain.

Craig Slee, 42, of Trawden Crescent, Preston, pleaded guilty to four offences under the 2006 Terrorism Act.

According to the BBC, he has also admitted possession of a prohibited weapon.

On sentencing him at Preston Crown Court, Judge Anthony Russell QC said the videos Slee uploaded revealed `shocking and barbaric depravity'.

The court heard, Slee created a false identity and set up a Facebook page, using the alter-ego Hashim X Shakur, and created another account called FB Mujahideen.

On his Hashim X Shakur Facebook account, Slee claimed to be a Muslim and provided personal information about himself, the majority of which was false.

However, the court heard Slee has no connection to the Taliban, Al-Qaeda or any other terrorist network or organization, the report said.

Following his arrest on 25 July, 2011 in Windermere, Cumbria, officers also recovered a can of CS gas from an address in Preston linked to Slee, it added. (ANI)
