Terrorist fundraiser in prison.
Shabaaz Hussain, 28, gave the money to three of his friends who had left the UK to allegedly become involved in terrorism in the African countr y.
Passing sentence Mr Justice Calvert-Smith told him he had an "industrious and productive" life before committing the offences.
The judge said: "These were, as you realised, substantial sums for people living, most likely, in basic conditions in countries like Somalia and Kenya.
"You certainly realised, in my judgement, that some of it would be used either directly or indirectly to help to resource acts of terrorism. You certainly realised as your counsel has conceded that it was going at least in general support of people with these intentions."
