SHAFAQNA – Two months ago Londoners reported receiving the letter which called for sickening acts of violence against Muslims. A man accused of 14 offences has appeared in court in connection with the investigation into the so-called Punish a Muslim Day letters.

According to Yahoo News, David Parnham, 35, from Lincoln in the UK, has been charged with a total of 14 offences – including staging a bomb hoax, sending threatening letters and sending a hoax noxious substance.

The anonymous notes were sent to Muslims across England and Wales in February and March.

 

Parnham was arrested in Lincoln on Tuesday, following searches at a home and an office building.

“Officers from the North East Counter Terrorism Unit (NECTU), supported by Lincolnshire Police, have arrested a 35-year-old man from south Lincoln in connection with an ongoing investigation into offensive communications,” a police spokesman said.

“We understand that people may be concerned following this activity”.

Parnham appeared at Westminster Magistrates Court on Friday and was remanded. He is due to appear at the Old Bailey on June 29.
