A man has appeared in a High Court in Glasgow on December 5 accused of preparing acts of terror, including planning Christchurch inspired terror attack on an Islamic centre in Fife, Scotland.

Sam Imri, who is charged under the Terrorism Act 2006 and one under the Terrorism Act 2000, will stand trial on July 1, 2020.

A third charge alleges he had a copy of ‘The Great Replacement’ by Brenton Tarrant – who is accused of killing 51 people in New Zealand — as well as Norwegian far-right terrorist Anders Brevik’s 2083 — a European Declaration of Independence.

The 22-year-old allegedly acquired knives, nunchucks, a hammer, a baseball bat, a rifle scope and petrol, which he referred to as his “arsenal.”
The offences are alleged to have taken place between June 2018 and July 2019.

Prosecutors also allege that the accused was offensive towards Muslim and Jewish communities as well as “encouraging acts of violence and threats.”Imrie is accused of making online statements declaring he “intended to stream live footage of an incident” and that he was going to “attack the Fife Islamic Centre” in Glenrothes.

Imri is said to have turned up there with a petrol can and carried out observations, made recordings on his mobile phone and repeatedly attempted to get in.

It is claimed he also compiled details of “terrorist attacks on places of worship.”

The charge claims that he was in possession of neo-Nazi, anti-Semitic and anti-Muslim material. Further claims include an allegation that he started a fire at Strathore Lodge in Thornton, Fife and uploaded footage of it online.
