 Terrorism Acts (2000-present) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
From 2000 to the present, the British Parliament passed a series of Terrorism Acts that were aimed at terrorism in general, rather than specifically focussed on terrorism related to Northern Ireland.
The timings were influenced by the September 11, 2001 attacks and 7 July London bombings, as well as the politics of the Global War on Terror, according to the politicians who announce them as their response to a terrorism act.
Between them, they provided a definition of terrorism that made it possible to establish a new and distinct set of police powers and procedures, beyond those related to ordinary crime, which could be applied in terrorist cases.

 commentary on The Terrorism Act 2000 - magnacartaplus
The UK's Terrorism Act 2000 was passed and received Royal Assent in the summer of 2000.
section 1: an act of terrorism is any specified action, the use or threat of which is designed to influence any government or to intimidate the public in order to advance a political religious or ideological purpose.
Given the wide definition of “terrorism” and the possible categories of information that could be useful for “terrorism”, this law could be used to harass activists who might not have any intention of committing terrorist acts, who are not members of terrorist organisations and who do not condone terrorism, e.g.

The Terrorism Act 2000 reforms and extends previous counter-terrorist legislation, and puts it largely on a permanent basis.
Under the Terrorism Act 2000, measures are applicable to all forms of terrorism.
The Act deals with the proscription of terrorist groups throughout the UK, the appeals process by which a proscription order may be challenged, offences relating to terrorist property (both property to be used for terrorism and the proceeds of acts of terrorism) and police counter-terrorist powers.

 Terrorism Act 2000/2001 : THE REAL STATE OF EMERGENCY - IS THE UK ABOUT TO BE TURNED INTO A POLICE STATE?
A simplified version of the wide-ranging definition provided in the Terrorism Act 2000 is appended at the end as it is key to understanding the breadth of some of this Bill.
It would be an offence not to report to the police which might prevent acts (this includes the mere threat of terrorism) of terrorism anywhere in the world or which would help detain or convict someone in the UK for acts of terrorism.
Schedule 7 of the Terrorism Act allows any person to be detained for up to nine hours or any goods or property for seven days without police or customs needing to give or indeed have any reason.

Also in February 2006, an ironic victory in the quasi-war on terror was won when police arrested both the stars (and the real life inspirations) of a film about internment in Guantanamo as they sought to return to Britain from the Berlin film festival.
Bukhari was found not guilty of illegal arms trafficking and one count of “conspiracy to commit terrorism.” The dismissal of his case was on the grounds of entrapment by an FBI agent.
One man was charged under terrorism legislation with “possession of a computer hard drive for a purpose connected with the commission, preparation or instigation of an act of terrorism.” Another, although the media reported it as a terrorism arrest, was charged under conventional legislation – conspiracy to cause explosions and harm “persons unknown.”

 Western Resistance: UK: Muslims Criticise The Terrorism Act 2006
There are further qualifications, but in essence, encouraging terrorism, encouraging terrorist acts or committing the act of glorification of terrorism can now bring in a penalty of up to 7 years' imprisonment maximum, or a fine, or both, when convicted following an indictment, and on summary conviction a sentence of up to 12 months' imprisonment.
In the new Terrorism Act 2006, this clause remains, as stated within sections 23 to 25, allowing 28 days as the maximum amount of time a suspect can be held in detention without trial.
Now, according to The National Ledger, the Terrorism Act 2006 is still under fire from Muslim groups, most notably the Muslim Council for Britain, as well as civil liberty campaigners.

These notes now accompany almost every Act and are used to explain in words of one or only a few more syllables what the Act is about.
The Act was passed after a series of temporary provisions going back to the beginnings of the 'Troubles' in Northern Ireland.
The Acts expired and would be renewed only if the situation was so dire as to justify these oppressive powers, these intereferences with proper criminal process.

 Terrorism: A Definitional Focus - Promotion
States have therefore defined terrorism generically as a crime, thus ending the true need for the use of specific statutes covering other selected criminal acts that are identified as terrorism.
While both the United Nations General Assembly and the Security Council repeatedly affirmed their determination to combat terrorism in all its forms "irrespective of motive, wherever and by whomever committed," **RF 13** the world body was reluctant for political reasons to define precisely the nature of the terrorism challenge.

 UK Civil Liberties - Terrorism Act 2000   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
The Terrorism Act 2000 replaced the "temporary" Prevention of Terrorism Act with a new permanent set of rules.
The biggest problem with the 2000 Act was that it defined "terrorism" in a very broad way.
Basically terrorism is defined as action or the mere threat of action that is made for advancing a cause, that attempts to influence the government and that falls into one of several categories including serious damage to property or disruption of an electronic system.

Muslims are to be the key targets of the crack down, which falls under the provisions contained in the Terrorism Act 2000 to be enforced in January.
The occupying Indian Army that is responsible for systematic acts of terrorism against Muslims in Kashmir who make up the majority of the population, is in receipt of military support by the same British Government which is now supposedly considering measures to “crack down” on the causes of terrorism.
IHRC therefore calls on the British Government to act with caution in regard to the case of Mohammed Bilal, and refrain from allowing the case to result in the demonisation of Muslims in Britian and abroad.

 Terrorism Act 2000   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
The Terrorism Act is a law put forward by this government in order to curb the spread of the fastest growing religion on Earth and to brand many Muslims and Islamic Movements as Terrorists.
This Act has been debated for many months but it was given a low profile and minimal public discussion as the term "terrorist" seemed to exclude the majority of people, however it seems that those really being targeted by this Act are Muslims and the Islamic way of life (Ideology).
When this act comes into force in February of this year any officer of law will be able to arrest any Muslim involved in any way with Jihad at will which could set a precedent where it could become commonplace to discriminate against Muslims -and-Islam.

A quick guide and brief summary of the parts of the British Terrorism Act 2000 of relevance to radical workers.

All 3 parts must be satisfied to come within the definition - there must be an act or threat (of eg serious damage to property), it must be done to influence the government, and it must be to advance a political or ideolgical cause.

Under Section 3(3)(a) of the Act, my right honourable friend the Home Secretary may by order add an organisation to Schedule 2 where he believes that it is concerned in terrorism, as defined in Section 1 of the Act.
He is entirely satisfied that the organisations named above are "concerned in terrorism" as set out in Section 3(5) of the Act, and has, after careful consideration, decided to exercise his discretion to proscribe them.
If that application is refused, the Act provides for an appeal to a new independent tribunal, the Proscribed Organisations Appeal Commission, established by the Terrorism Act.

Are we obliged to abide by the law even if it may effect our belief, especially with the new Terrorism Act, how can we Muslims maintain our brotherhood with Muslims worldwide and support their Jihad e.g.
As for the new law of Terrorism it should not effect the Muslims since the Muslim Community is a peaceful community who are anti-terrorism, anti-racism, anti-discrimination in all its shapes and forms and above all pro-life which can be seen from Muslims propagating anti-abortion and pro-morale values.
Therefore the Islamic brotherhood must not be affected by the intimidation of a man-made government under the pretext of a "Terrorism Act", and Muslims must resist it.

 United Kingdom: Amnesty International's briefing on the draft Terrorism Bill 2005 - Amnesty International   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
Amnesty International reiterates its concern that the definition of "terrorism", and thereby any offence which is based on it, may violate the principle of legality and legal certainty by being too wide and vague and, therefore, by failing to meet the precision and clarity requirements for criminal law.
The organization considers that the formulations of these offences are vague because they rely on the definition of "terrorism" in the Terrorism Act 2000, and on concepts such as "direct or indirect encouragement or other inducement", "glorification", and the notion of "terrorist publication", all of which are widely open to ambiguity and lack clarity.
Relevant excerpts from the 13 September 2005 draft Terrorism Bill 2005 and the amendment of 6 October 2005 are reproduced respectively in appendix I and II attached to this document.

One of the detainees has been arrested on suspicion of offences under sections 11, 12 and 15 of the Terrorism Act 2000, i.e., membership of a proscribed (illegal) organisation, support of a proscribed organisation and raising finances for the purposes of terrorism.
In the early hours of Wednesday 11 December, 7 people were dragged from their homes, arrested and detained under this government's most repressive piece of legislation, the Terrorism Act 2000.
The Terrorism Act 2000 effectively allows for people to be dragged from their homes and detained without trial at the will of the state for what amounts to little more than "Thought-Crime", expressing support for beliefs and causes that the NATO imperialist oligarchy deem to be "terrorist".
