Mouloud Tahari, a 20-year-old student from Birmingham, has been charged with funding terrorism overseas. He is due to appear at Westminster Magistrates Court today.

He is the third person to be charged in connection with an investigation into Syria-related terrorism offences that resulted in two arrests last week. Others included Gerrie Tahari – Mouloud’s 44-year-old mother – and Moazzam Begg, the former Guantanamo Bay detainee.

Both remain in custody and will appear at the Old Bailey on 14 March. 

Mr Tahari, from Ashway in Sparkhill, is accused of being concerned in a terrorist funding arrangement between 31 December 2011 and  6 November 2013.
