Three women face charges of supporting a proscribed terrorist group after a Met inquiry into a central London protest last month.

Noimutu Olayinka Taiwo, 27, of south London, was charged on November 9 under Section 13 of the Terrorism Act 2000 (publication of images supporting a proscribed organisation).

On October 14, Taiwo allegedly displayed an article in public at Whitehall, namely a paraglider image, in a way that created suspicion that she supports Hamas.

The wording of the charge is as follows: “On 14 October, in a public place, namely Whitehall, carried or displayed an article, namely an image displaying a paraglider, in such a way or in such circumstances as to arouse reasonable suspicion that she is a supporter of a proscribed organisation, namely Hamas, contrary to section 13(1) Terrorism Act 2000.”

Taiwo is set to attend the Westminster Magistrates' Court on November 10 at 2.30pm Two more women were charged with the same offence on November 3.

Heba Alhayek, 29, and Pauline Ankunda, 26, who are also residents of south London, will appear in court as co-defendants with Taiwo.

Commander Dominic Murphy, of the Met's Counter Terrorism Command said: "On this case and others, officers are working tirelessly to investigate alleged offences linked to protest activity, and take action when there is evidence of criminality.

"We will continue to working with the Crown Prosecution Service to bring charges against people suspected of committing offences that encourage hate, and are harmful to communities."
