Cardiff's Millennium Stadium
An engineering graduate who applied to work at the Olympics is facing jail for a terror offence.
Norman Idris Faridi, 32, was turned down after applying to work at the Millennium Stadium, where footballing events were held.
He was later found to have a terrorist manual, 39 Ways to Serve and Proceed in Jihad, on his external hard drive and in a deleted file.
A jury at the Old Bailey found him guilty today of possessing records likely to be useful to someone preparing or committing an act of terrorism.
A similar charge of having al Qaeda’s Inspire magazine was ordered to lie on file after the jury could not reach a verdict.
Faridi, of Pen-y-Wain, Cathays, Cardiff, was cleared of a third charge of having a guide to fighting techniques for a similar purpose.
The court heard of the Kenyan national’s bid to work at the Olympics during a bail hearing last year.
The Glamorgan University aeronautics engineering graduate was remanded in custody until next week to allow for technicalities involved in deportation moves.
Faridi, whose student visa expired while he was in custody, faces jail but has already served the equivalent of 16 months on remand.
