A mother-of-two from north west London accused of recruiting a university student to smuggle 20,000 Euros in her underwear to fund terrorism in Syria will stand trial in July.
Amal El-Wahabi, 27, is accused of asking Nawal Masaad to take the money to her terrorist husband in the war-torn country.
The Old Bailey heard the 26-year-old from Holloway, was found with the cash wrapped in clingfilm during a search at Heathrow airport on 16 January this year.
She was due to board a flight to Turkey.
Both women appeared in court today where they pleaded not guilty to one count of becoming concerned in a funding arrangement as a result of which money was made available or was to be made available to another, and they knew or had reasonable cause to suspect that it would or may be used for the purposes of terrorism.
