DAILY NATION Thursday February 20, 2014 CHARGES | Witness says files contained extreme ideology Wanted woman linked to laptop in terror case Scotland Yard detective says woman is wanted by Kenyan police BY GALGALO BOCHA @gallgallo firstname.lastname@example.org A laptop seized from a British terror suspect belonged to a woman on the police wanted list, a Mombasa court heard yesterday. However, Scotland Yard computer forensic expert Stephen Ball, who was testifying in case in which Jermaine Grant (right) is charged with having explosives, did not identify the woman. Last year, Interpol is- sued an international “red tape” against Ms Samantha Lewthwaite, also referred to as “white widow” by British media. Police have issued an arrest warrant against her. She also has a case before a Mombasa court. Police had previously linked her to the laptop recovered in one of the houses she allegedly rented in Mombasa. The witness also declined, despite pressure from Grant’s lawyer Chacha Mwita, to discuss the contents of the laptop. “Laptop exhibit number M55 is thought to belong to a female that is not in court MERU TEACHERS’ COLLEGE P.

He stated: “I know exactly the content of that hard drive, please please, it is prejudicial to your case, we’re not dealing with this woman here.” The detective, who started his testimony on Monday, returned to the witness box yesterday to be cross examined by the defence team. Mr Ball said he had no evidence to show that the electronic gadgets, including a purple Sony flash disc, he had subjected to forensic analysis were found in the possession of Grant. Mr Chacha: Does the in- formation on the thumb drive assist you to know whether the owner was male or female? Mr Ball: No your honour. The witness further told the court that none of the 125 files he had retrieved was authored by Grant. He said that “they all come from somewhere else.” Other than explosive-mak- ing materials which police had claimed was found in possession of Grant, the witness had not found anything in the flash disc and the laptop to associate with the accused. The witness told the court that 60 out of 125 files he had recovered contained extreme ideology, which he said could be sufficient to support terrorism charges in the UK. Expertise on explosives Mr Ball, however, said he could not refer to some of the files in his evidence as they had been authored by a colleague with expertise on explosives. He said he would restrict The number of files in electronic gadgets seized from terror suspect that contained extreme ideology his testimony to what he recovered from the two gadgets and his knowledge on computer forensic examination. He denied tampering with the contents of the flash disc and the laptop. He noted that some of the information in the gadgets had either been deleted or overwritten but he managed to reconstruct a few of them. The hearing continues tomorrow. TAMBACH TEACHERS COLLEGE P.O.
