A BRITON has gone on trial on terrorism charges in Kenya.
And court officials have confirmed the widow of Huddersfield suicide bomber Jermaine Lindsay was linked to the terror plot.
The man, identified as Jermain Jhon Grant in court documents, sat silent as the prosecution’s first witness gave evidence in a magistrate’s court in the coastal town of Mombasa.
Prosecutors revealed they are looking for Samantha Lewthwaite, the widow of Lindsay, in connection with the alleged plot.
Grant faces charges stemming from what Kenyan police say was his role in a failed terrorist plot in Kenya late last year.
And the prosecutor Jacob Ondari said he believed Lewthwaite was linked to the plot and was the main financier.
She was married to former Rawthorpe High School student Lindsay, who was one of the four West Yorkshire suicide bombers who struck in London on July 7, 2005.
He killed himself and 26 others when he detonated a rucksack bomb on a train from Kings Cross.
The couple had been living in Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire, in the months before the fatal bombing mission.
Lewthwaite claimed at the time to know nothing of Lindsay’s plans.
Mr Ondari said: “Samantha Lewthwaite is linked to Grant. It is the same bomb plot and they were working together.
“She is wanted by police over this plot. We believe she was the main financier”.
Police have checked on a number of properties that Lewthwaite is believed to have used in Mombasa, Kenya.
One of those contained alleged bomb-making materials including acetone, hydrogen peroxide and ammonium nitrate.
Grant is already serving a jail term for being in Kenya illegally.
Kenya has been on high alert for possible terrorist strikes after sending its troops into Somalia last October.
The case was adjourned until August.
