An online troll threatened to kill Met Police Commissioner Cressida Dick and two senior colleagues in a vile email.

Rejwanul Islam, 32, appeared at Westminster Magistrates Court today accused of threatening to kill Scotland Yard’s chief, along with Chief Supt Ade Adelekan, the head of the Violent Crime Task Force, and PC Samantha Tree.

In one email, it is alleged Dame Cressida, 59, was warned: ‘You and your police officers will be attacked over the week. Any attempt to stop it will lead to dead officers. I will follow officers home and attack their families.’

Rejwanul Islam, 32, is accused of threatening to kill the Met Police Commissioner, Chief Supt Ade Adelekan, the head of the Violent Crime Task Force, and PC Samantha Tree.

Westminster Magistrates’ court heard the emails were sent on January 18 and 19 this year.

Michael Mallon, prosecuting, said: ‘Given the nature of the repeated threats which involve several officers, notably the Commissioner Cressida Dick, the Crown would say not suitable for summary trial.’

Dame Cressida Dick allegedly received an email in January that warned: ‘I will follow officers home and attack their families’

He said the email sent to PC Tree, with Chief Supt Adekelan cc’d, was ‘rambling in nature’ and read: ‘Police, MI5, MI6 I will start to assassinate police officers.’

It went on: ‘Hello, you and your police officers will be attacked over the week. Any attempt to stop it will lead to dead officers.

‘I will follow officers home and attack them and their families. This is not a hoax. Get it through your head. You have been warned.’

Mr Mallon added: ‘He sent the same email to Cressida Dick.’

Islam, of East Ham, faces three charges of making threats to kill.

He was bailed on condition he does not contact police aside from an emergency ahead of his next appearance at Snaresbrook Crown Court on July 27.
