Recaptured British prisoner, Daniel Khalife may have used a bed sheet to strap himself to the underside of a food delivery truck when he escaped from prison.
Khalifa was recaptured and taken to Westminster Magistrates’ Court charged with escaping lawful custody two days after being detained by police in west London.
He was brought to court on Monday in a bullet and bombproof truck in a police convoy from Belmarsh Prison, a maximum security facility in southeast London
He broke out from South London prison where he was awaiting trial in November on charges of allegedly obtaining information useful to the enemy, eliciting information about members of the armed forces contrary to the Terrorism Act 2000.
Authorities had earlier suggested that Khalife was working in the prison kitchens and slipped through security by dressing as a chef and clinging to the beneath of a food truck, but then there is the new bedsheet story, according to a court session that lasted for less than 10 minutes.
He is accused of working on behalf of a hostile foreign state while working at the Ministry of Defense’s Stafford station from where he disappeared in January, after planting several fake bombs.
