British preacher Anjem Choudary was on Wednesday charged under anti-terror laws with inviting support for the Islamic State group, prosecutors said.

The 48-year-old is regularly interviewed by British media for his views on Islam and the Middle East.

He and a second man, Mohammed Mizanur Rahman, 32, were charged with inviting support for the IS group between 29 June 2014 and 6 March 2015.

„Each man is charged with one offence contrary to section 12 of the Terrorism Act 2000,” said Sue Hemming, head of special crime and counter-terrorism at the Crown Prosecution Service.

„It is alleged that Anjem Choudary and Mohammed Rahman invited support for IS in individual lectures which were subsequently published online.”

Both men were arrested on 25 September last year on suspicion of being members of a banned organisation and released on police bail.

They were detained again pending a formal charging hearing at a London court later on Wednesday.
