A man is due to appear in court today charged with conspiracy to murder in relation to improvised explosive devices found in Iraq in 2007.
Anis Abid Sardar, 37, was arrested at his home in north west London on Tuesday by the Metropolitan Police’s Counter Terrorism Command.
He is accused of conspiracy to murder and conspiracy to cause an explosion with intent to endanger life or property.
Sardar, of north west London, will appear at Westminster Magistrates’ Court today.
Deborah Walsh, deputy head of counter terrorism at the CPS, said: ” Following an investigation by the Metropolitan Police Service, I have authorised charges against Anis Abid Sardar in connection to a number of road side improvised explosive devices (IEDs) recovered from the Al Anbar province of Iraq in 2007.
“It is alleged that Mr Sardar conspired to murder coalition forces operating in Iraq on or before 22 November 2007 by conspiring to cause the explosion of these IEDs.
“The decision to prosecute was taken in accordance with the Code for Crown Prosecutors. I have determined that there is sufficient evidence for a realistic prospect of conviction and that a prosecution is in the public interest.”
