A man has appeared in court in connection with the murder of a Syrian-born preacher who was shot dead in Wembley.
Abdul Hadi Arwani, 48, an outspoken critic of the Assad regime in Syria, was found in a car in the Greenhill at the junction of The Paddocks, on April 7.
Khalid Rashad, 61, of Monks Park, Wembley, is accused of possessing an explosive substance for an unlawful purpose and ammunition for a firearm without a certificate.
He appeared at Harrow Crown Court yesterday for a bail hearing, which was refused, and he was remanded in custody to reappear on May 8.
Leslie Cooper, 36, of Nightingale Road, Harlesden, appeared at the Old Bailey last week charged with Mr Arwani’s murder.
