Britain Finally Charges Anjem Choudary with Inviting Support for ISIS

The United Kingdom has finally charged pro-Sharia preacher Anjem Choudary for backing ISIS.

According to Scotland Yard:

Anjem Choudary, 48 (18.1.67) of Hampton Road, Ilford was charged as follows:
Between 29 June 2014 and 6 March 2015 invited support for a proscribed terrorist organisation, namely ISIL, also known as ISIS or the Islamic State, contrary to section 12 Terrorism Act 2000.

Mohammed Rahman, 32 (28.6.83) of Sidney Street, London E1 was charged as follows:
Between 29 June 2014 and 6 March 2015 invited support for a proscribed terrorist organisation, namely ISIL, also known as ISIS or the Islamic State, contrary to section 12 Terrorism Act 2000.

Both men have been detained in custody to appear at Westminster Magistrates’ Court today, Wednesday 5 August at 14:00hrs.

On Thursday 25 September 2014 the suspects were arrested by the Met’s Counter-Terrorism Command (SO15) on suspicion of being members of the proscribed organisation. They have remained on police bail throughout the investigation.

Siddhartha Dhar, who’s close to Choudary and marched in his pro-Sharia events, was arrested in that September bust on suspicion of encouraging terrorism. He jumped bail and fled to the Islamic State with his pregnant wife, who later gave birth to a boy. He’s since been writing ISIS publications to lure other Westerners there.
