Rajib Karim was jailed for 30 years on March 18 for plotting to blow up a plane. He was sentenced at Woolwich Crown Court in London after the trial ended in February 2011 for four offences of preparing acts of terrorism.
A computer expert who worked for British Airways has been found guilty today of a range of terrorism charges related to plotting to blow up planes.
Rajib Karim worked for the carrier at its Newcastle offices in the UK before being arrested at his desk in February 2010. Born in Bangladesh, Karim had moved to Newcastle with his family in 2006 and eventually found work with the airline.
He denied four charges charges covering plotting and engaging in activity in preparation for terrorist attacks. It is not known if a specific plot against an airline or aircraft emerged as a result of his behaviour.
Karim was accused of using his position at BA to access data and other information, and feeding material to notorious radical cleric Anqwar al-Awlaki.
The court was told Karim (a "committed Jihadist") encrypted confidential information taken from the BA system and met with other extremists at London's Heathrow Airport. He also applied to be a member of the BA cabin crew.
Karim was found guilty of all four charges today and will be sentenced in March 2011.
British Airways has yet to comment following the guilty verdict in a London court today.
