Muslim man accused of threatening Islamic leader cleared of wrongdoing
by Rob Kidd
A Muslim man accused of threatening an Islamic leader with "jihad" has had the charge against him thrown out of court.
Abdulla Hamam, 23, was charged with intimidating former New Zealand Muslim Association president Glumly Haide Lone after he and several associates confronted him at his Sandringham home in May last year.
The incident came about after a group of Muslims accused of extremism - including Hamam and his father Salafist Imam Sheikh Abu Abdullah - were trespassed from the Avondale Islamic Centre.
