An undercover FBI agent on the darknet has exposed a Watford man of attempting to purchase grenades and Semtex explosives.
Mohammed Humza, age 29, from the city of Watford, did not appear at the Old Bailey for trial on Monday.
The trial took place in his absence and by a majority of eleven to one, the judge reached a culpable verdict. Justice McGowan said that the existing location of Humza was a ‘mystery.’
He may, however, claim that he has left the country to prevent police from attempting to locate him, but he might claim that he has left the country. The judge announced that the conviction of Humza ‘s previous rejection for an offense of attempting to possess explosive substances would depend on whether it is connected to terrorism. Humza, who was called mh.nn243, had come to the Court in summer 2016, when he appeared as a seller on the dark AlphaBay web trading platform.
In a July 2016 message to the agent, mh.nn243 asked: “What is the best cost for 2 UK-based grenades?” The court then offered to give four grenades $115 (£89) a piece, debating payment methods. During the trade, the couple also spoke about “Watford” and “Hertfordshire” delivery rates, but the agreement was not concluded. In the beginning of August, Humza again contacted the agent and the pair settled on deal for two grenades, the court heard.
On 6 August mh.nnn243 transferred the money to be paid after the contract had been concluded. Jurors were informed that Humza had agreed to deliver the goods to his Fuller Road address but on behalf of his neighbor.
Later the consumer tried to purchase Semtex and a fuse detonator, after the agent was informed he was out of stock with grenades and his crypto-currency was re-funded. Humza was told by the court that he had already been convicted of fraud and robbery but no terrorist offenses.
