A former Guantanamo Bay detainee who received an estimated £1 million compensation from the government has appeared in court charged with terrorism offences.

Moazzam Begg is charged with providing instruction and training for terrorism and funding terrorism in Syria, plus terrorism funding offences.

The 45-year-old was arrested by West Midlands Police on Tuesday at his home in Hall Green, Birmingham.

He appeared at Westminster magistrates' court, along with a woman, Gerrie Tahari, 44, from Sparkbrook, Birmingham, who is accused of funding terrorism overseas.

Begg's charges involve providing terrorism training and instruction between October 9 2012 and April 9 2013.

One of the released terrorists from GTMO was  one of the ones that attacked in Benghazi.

Did ya hear that Christie stopped traffic and Obama took over the tonight show?

If convicted, he will be sentenced to about 3 years in the UK, then released again.
