London, may 28 (ANI): Three sons of hook-handed hate preacher Abu Hamza begged a judge not to jail them yesterday in connection with a million pound luxury car scam.
Hamza Kemal, 22, Mohamed Mostafa, 27, and stepson Mohssin Ghailan, 28, admitted being part of a gang which stole and then sold plush cars to fund their party lifestyles.
But Ben Brandon, defending, said there was no suggestion any of the three were connected to terrorism.
He claimed that a media campaign against Hamza had made Mostafa's life hell and seen him hounded out of jobs.
The three will be sentenced today along with four co-defendants at Southwark Crown Court. (ANI)
