The family of a former Taliban fighter convicted of attempting to recruit two undercover police officers for jihad in Afghanistan face losing their £200,000 home under anti-terrorism laws.
Munir Farooqi, 56, was given four life sentences in September 2011 for running a ‘recruitment centre’ for home-grown extremists to go to Afghanistan to kill British troops.
His family have now spoken of how it is ‘sickening’ that they face being made homeless if Farooqi loses his High Court appeal next month against his conviction.
