SPAIN and the UK are facing a €1.8 million compensation claim after a man was wrongly accused of being a terrorist.

Farid Hilali was jailed in Britain following an international arrest warrant issued by Spain in 2004.

Authorities believed the Moroccan citizen to be a member of Al-Qaeda and that he was passing messages to the leader of a Spanish cell about the 2001 attacks on New York and Washington.

Spain’s High Court acquitted Hilali in 2012 admitting that was no evidence.
