(ANSA) - Perugia, July 30 - Italy has expelled the former
imam of a mosque in suburban Perugia, following his release from
prison where he served a six-year sentence for terrorist
training.
Moroccan Mostapha El Korchi, former imam of the mosque at
Ponte Felcino, was released and repatriated from Rome's main
Leonardo da Vinci airport.
He was regarded as a central character in an investigation
that led counter-terrorism authorities in Italy to arrest him
and two Moroccan assistants, and seize a wide range of
materials.
El Korchi had been under surveillance for months with
police tracking his Internet activity and recording public
sermons in favour of jihad or holy war, police said at the time
of his arrest.
El Korchi, who was active in training would-be terrorists,
served his sentence in a prison in southern Italy and was then
immediately expelled as ordered by the courts in his sentence.
