Muslim cleric accused of links to Bataclan bomber ‘contacted a Spanish terrorist cell’
He is accused of being the spiritual leader of the cell and of using the internet to recruit jihadis.
The preacher allegedly posted a propaganda video on social media called “Tufiq Went To Syria”.
Chadlioui, 43, denies the allegations and is fighting attempts to extradite him to Spain.
The father of eight was arrested at his home in Birmingham last week.
The Muslim cleric has been suspected of radicalising a man involved in the Paris Bataclan attack
Carl Kelvin, prosecuting, told Westminster magistrates Chadlioui belongs to an “organised group that appears to centre around the Al Fagar de Inca mosque in Mallorca.
“In 2014, it is known that he travelled out to that mosque and again in 2015 he went back to Majorca.
“It appears a series of three videos were made with the title ‘Tufiq Went To Syria’. The purpose of these videos and other material posted online by Mr Chadlioui, together with others, was to encourage radicalisation and for others to be prepared to become jihadist fighters.”
