Trainee maths teacher Lorna Moore (34) was planning to take her three young children to the war zone – including an 11-month-old baby.
Moore – who had been living in Walsall, West Midlands, but is originally from Omagh, Co Tyrone – was also accused of failing to tell authorities her husband Sajid Aslam (34) had fled the UK to join Isil .
Sentencing her at the Old Bailey yesterday, Judge Charles Wide described Moore as a “very strong character” and said she “knew perfectly well of your husband’s dedication to terrorism.
As part of the same trial, Ayman Shaukat (28) was also convicted of preparing terrorist acts by helping Aslam and Muslim convert Alex Nash (22) to travel to Syria.
Aslam left Britain for Syria in August 2014. Within months, Moore had booked flights to Palma, Majorca, but her final destination was given away in a text from Nash’s pregnant wife in Turkey saying “see you there”.
