Shahnaz Network (5166/19)
I am writing to obtain documents and emails pertaining to the Shanaz Network.
A report on the West Midlands Police site (https://www.west-midlands.police.uk/wmpeople/khizra-dhindsa) indicated that Shanaz operated in the West Midlands, and that a national guidance document on Shanaz was created and distributed to all police forces.
Please send me a copy of this document, and any documents related to the Shanaz network.
The article also indicated that regular reports were sent regarding Shanaz.
Please send me a copy of any reports sent or received regarding the Shanaz network.
Please also send me any emails relating to the setting up or maintaining of the Shanaz network.
I am writing to inform you that we have searched our records and the information you requested is not held by West Midlands Police. We have contacted the officer responsible for the creation of the national Shanaz Network which was set up during a secondment to another organisation, they have no documents relating to the group but have provided the following link: https://shanaznetwork.weebly.com/shanaz-what-we-stand-for.html which you may find useful. Any documents were on the ACPO TAM (Terrorism and Allied Matters) website which is no longer available.
