Accused....Mohamed Larbi Ben Sellam

A Moroccan citizen accused of belonging to a terrorist organisation and with conspiracy to murder. The total sentence requested by the prosecution is 27 years imprisonment. He was arrested in Barcelona in May 2005, although it is said he was first put under police surveillance in 2002 because of his relationships with radical Islamists. He is said to have been a full member of Movimiento Salafista de la Yihad Combatiente, controlled by Serhane ben Abdelmajid Fakhet (El Tunecino) and Rabei Osman el Sayed Ahmed (El Egipcio). He is believed to have been a point of connection between these two.
