Project Griffin – Counter Terrorism Training

Project Griffin – Counter Terrorism Training

The opportunity has arisen for security operatives to take part in counter terrorism training as a part of Operation Griffin, organised by the National Counter Terrorism Security Office (NaCTSO). In addition, participants will be asked to help evaluate the effectiveness of the training. The training is free, lasts for 90 minutes, and covers three of Project Griffin s modules:

Module 3 Identifying and Responding to Suspicious Behaviour
Module 4 Identifying and Dealing with Bombs (IED) and Suspicious Items
Module 6 Responding to a Firearms or Weapons Attack

This training is particularly relevant as 8.1.3 of the ACS standard requires an SIA approved contractor to demonstrate activities to promote and improve the awareness of anti-terrorist activities. Spaces are limited to 20 people per training session. To register for the training, please send the names, email addresses of participants and a contact phone number*, indicating which event they wish to attend to: stakeholder@sia.gsi.gov.uk

*Please note: The SIA will share the contact details provided with NaCTSO, their training providers and the evaluation researchers.

Door Supervisor prosecuted for attempted fraud, by falsely claiming compensation from the SIA

Door Supervisor Prosecuted For Attempted Fraud, By Falsely Claiming Compensation From The SIA

On 11 August 2017, at Bristol Magistrates Court, we prosecuted Zakir Mohammed Zillul for attempting to claim 1673 in compensation for alleged lost travel documents. In August 2016, Zillul submitted an application to the SIA for a Door Supervision Licence. In support of this application, and to verify his identity, he sent his passport to us. On Friday 16 September 2016, Zillul contacted us say that he was due to travel abroad on 21 September and needed his passport to be returned as soon as possible. We returned Zillul s passport via Royal Mail Special Delivery on 20 September to arrive by 1 pm the next day.

However, due to a delay by Royal Mail, the passport was not delivered on 21 September. Zillul claimed that as a result of the late return of his passport he could not travel as he had arranged. On 26 September 2016, Zillul contacted us to make a claim for 1673, which was the cost of his apparent flights. We agreed to consider a compensation or reimbursement claim if Zillul could produce evidence of the missed flights, including proof of payment. This would be reviewed alongside the circumstances of the return of Zillul s passport.

In October 2016, following a successful application, Zillul was issued with a Door Supervisor licence. Zillul emailed us in October 2016 with evidence of the cost of the travel, and a document purporting to be an itinerary/invoice from a travel agent showing the alleged cost of the flights. In addition, he provided evidence to us, showing cash withdrawals from his bank account which he claimed were made to pay for the holiday. We believed that the documentation provided was false, so an investigation was carried out by their Criminal Investigation Team. They discovered that Zillul had not made any such travel booking.

Instead he had asked a travel agent to produce an invoice and itinerary. He used the excuse that he needed to make a claim from his travel insurance company, but had lost the relevant paperwork. When interviewed, Zillul said that a cousin was responsible for making the claim for compensation in his name. He claimed that this cousin had access and online control of Zillul s bank account and email, and implied that his cousin was corresponding to us in his name. Zillul added that his cousin was involved in a relationship with the travel agent who had provided the alleged invoice.

The travel agent denied this, and stated that she did not know the person named as Zillul s cousin. She did, however, admit to knowing Zillul, and to falsely producing an invoice itinerary for what she thought was a claim against Zillul s travel insurance. The travel agent confirmed that no actual travel booking was made by Zillul. Despite numerous attempts made by our investigators to identify Zillul s cousin, he was not traced, nor did he make himself available for interview. Zillul pleaded guilty to attempted fraud by false representation, and to having in his possession an article for use in fraud (the email purporting to be from the travel agent to support his claim for compensation).

The Court sentenced Zillul to 210 hours of unpaid community service, to be completed within a 12 months. Zillul was also ordered to pay 2046.30 prosecution costs and an 85 victim surcharge. Nathan Salmon, SIA Criminal Investigation Manager, said;

Zillul fraudulently tried to obtain compensation of 1673.00 from the SIA, when he clearly had no right to do so, He devised an elaborate plan involving the production and presentation of false documentary evidence to support his claim, using the misguided assistance of another person to facilitate the crime. The SIA robustly regulates the security industry and will seek to prosecute those individuals who choose to commit criminal offences – either in their individual licence application, or when they are working as a licensed security operative .

Criminology student shouted racist abuse at McDonald’s security on only night he has got drunk

A city student must pay 50 compensation to a McDonald’s security guard for shouting racist abuse at him.

Magistrates1 imposed the order on Jouffrey Onkani after hearing that he caused problems on the only night he had ever got drunk. He had denied racially aggravated disorderly conduct2 at the Angel Row restaurant at 3.50am on May 4 . But he was found guilty after a trial and was ordered to do 60 hours unpaid work. Anna Pierrepont, prosecuting, said Onkani entered the premises carrying a bottle and was challenged by security staff because this was in breach of a “no glass” policy.

Onkani, 21, made a racist comment and left the guard “clearly concerned for his safety” . When Onkani swung round, a guard ducked out of the way and another security officer grabbed the bottle. When the guard was asked about the effect of the racist abuse aimed at him, he excused Onkani, who is a criminology student at Nottingham Trent University3. Miss Pierrepont added: “He said that he did not consider it to be a hate incident but a drunken one, rather than racial.”

Jameel Malik, defending, said Onkani had never tried alcohol until that night and was ashamed at the episode.

“He didn’t feel drunk and did not think it had any effect on him .

It was in the fresh air where he started to feel he was drunk.

“He had never been drunk before and this incident was fuelled with alcohol,” said Mr Malik . Onkani’s home address was given as Aldgate Grove, Birmingham.

“When shown the CCTV, he put his head in his hands and was very remorseful,” said Mr Malik . He told the court that Onkani is a role model to his younger sisters and has just passed his second year examinations.

He said that Onkani called a white security man “fat” and said the police were “racist” when they arrived. Mr Malik added: “This is not a hate crime, not aggravated by racism . He didn’t target the security guards because they were black.

“This incident is a blip, out of character .

He had never been drunk before, he is ashamed and embarrassed and stands in front of you with his liberty at risk.”

Presiding magistrate Kathryn Allsop told Onkani: “Just a warning – please don’t get drunk again.” He was ordered to pay 200 prosecution costs.
