TWO men who planned to attend a training camp for terrorists were each jailed for seven years.
Waheed Ali, 25, Mohammed Shakil, 32, and Sadeer Saleem, 28, had been cleared of helping the July 7 bombers from West Yorkshire select their targets.
But Ali and Shakil were found guilty of conspiracy to attend a training camp for terrorists after they were arrested before boarding a flight for Pakistan in 2007.
Mr Justice Gross sentenced the pair to seven years each at Kingston Crown Court.
Both men have already spent more than two years in custody which will be deducted from the time they will serve.
Both Ali and Shakil had admitted attending terrorist training camps in the past, before it had been made an offence.
Ali, Shakil, and Mr Saleem, all of Beeston, Leeds, were re-tried after an earlier jury failed to reach verdicts.
They were the only people to be charged as a result of the biggest police inquiry in British history.
More than 37,000 exhibits were forensically examined, 4,700 telephones seized and 24,000 people eliminated from inquiries by an army of police and MI5 investigators.
The total cost of the two trials is likely to exceed £5m.
Families of the July 7 victims say the verdicts mean no one is likely to ever be brought to justice for the attacks on London’s transport network. They are demanding a full independent inquiry into the atrocity.
Bereaved families and survivors have also called on the Government to publish a second Intelligence and Security Committee (ISC) report into the bombings without delay.
And they said inquests into the deaths of all 52 victims, plus the four suicide bombers, should be held in public as soon as possible.
Suicide bombers Mohammed Siddique Khan, of Thornhill Lees, Shehzad Tanweer, Hasib Hussain and former Rawthorpe student Jermaine Lindsay detonated rucksack devices packed with explosives on three Tube trains and a bus.
The trial heard that the three defendants travelled from Leeds to London on December 16, 2004, with Hussain, who went on to detonate his bomb on the No 30 bus in Tavistock Square, claiming 13 lives. They also met Lindsay, who killed 26 people on a Piccadilly Line underground train.
The prosecution alleged they conducted a “hostile reconnaissance” of potential targets during a two-day visit.
The three defendants admitted making the visit but claimed it was an entirely innocent social outing and the purpose was for Ali to visit his sister and sightseeing.
The head of Scotland Yard’s Counter Terrorism Command said that Ali and Shakil shared the same extremist beliefs as the London bombers.
Deputy Assistant Commissioner John McDowall said: “While those directly responsible for the bombings died in the attacks, we remain convinced that others must have been involved in the planning.”
