A self-employed Uber driver allegedly caught carrying a large sword near Buckingham Palace has denied a terrorism charge. Mohiussunnath Chowdhury, 26, appeared at the Old Bailey via video link from Belmarsh jail today (January 15). He pleaded not guilty to a charge of preparation of terrorist acts on or before August 25, 2017. Mr Chowdhury, from Luton, Bedfordshire, who was arrested on suspicion of grievous bodily harm and assault on police, was remanded in custody ahead of a scheduled one-week trial in June. In August, two officers were taken to hospital after being allegedly attacked by a man with a large knife outside the Queens London residence, sustaining minor arm injuries. The Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) praised the officers for their quick and brave actions. None of the Royal Family were reportedly in Buckingham Palace at the time.
