Kuwaiti national Ezeedem Al Khaledi, who was involved in aiding terrorist activities, was arrested on March 8 in Glasgow, a city of southwest Scotland, under the Terrorism Act as part of an intelligence-led operation in the city.

According to the reports, Khaledi faced three charges under the Terrorism Act and five others under immigration laws and banking regulations.
