A 31-year-old arrested by detectives investigating people travelling to Syria in support of terrorist activity is due to appear in court today, police said.
The unnamed man will appear at Westminster Magistrates’ Court where he will be charged with the preparation of terrorist acts contrary to Section 5 of the Terrorism Act 2006.
He was arrested in east London just before 5.30pm yesterday by officers from the Counter Terrorism Command (SO15) after an arrest warrant was granted by a district judge at the court.
A Metropolitan Police spokesman said the man would appear at 9am today in court.
The man was originally arrested on January 10 and released without charge on January 16.
Two other men have previously been charged in connection with the investigation.
