Mombasa court finds Briton Jermaine Grant
guilty of possessing bomb-making materials

MOMBASA (Xinhua) -- Kenyan court on Wednesday found British terror suspect Jermaine Grant guilty of possessing bomb-making materials.

Grant, who was arrested in 2011 together with his wife Warda Breik Islam, and Frank Ngala in Kisauni with powder and electric wires suspected to be used for making bombs, will be sentenced on May 9, the court said.

  "I therefore find that Grant knew about the chemicals and other items in the house.

"So this means he was in constructive possession of the same," Chief Magistrate Evans Makori said.

Grant, Breik and Ngala were accused of three counts of being in possession of materials used in making explosives, conspiracy to commit a felony and being in possession of explosives.

Makori ruled that the chemicals that were found could be used to make explosives, adding that literature found in the suspect’s residence together with information extracted from a flash disk, also recovered from him, clearly indicated that the items were to be used to make an explosive.

Grant was then married to Breik and they were staying in Kisauni, Mombasa County.

Grant is already serving a nine years sentence in Mombasa after he was convicted of forgery in order to get Kenyan identification documents.
