Olivia Checa-Dover acted on behalf of Counter Terrorism Policing North East (CTPNE)

11 January 2022

Miriam Seebagh initially came to the attention of counter-terrorism police following receipt of financial information, which indicated that she had made several payments to an individual linked to Al-Muhajiroun, a proscribed terrorist organisation.

Following a lengthy and complex investigation, cash was seized from Ms Seebagh and made the subject of a forfeiture application. Ms Seebagh’s account, which was principally that the financial transactions had been charitable, was rejected following a contested hearing; her cash was forfeited.

Ms Sebbagh was subsequently prohibited from teaching indefinitely. The full judgment of the Teaching Regulatory Panel can be found here.
