Daniel Abed Khalife, a former soldier, had escaped from Wandsworth Prison while awaiting trial on terrorism charges before he was recaptured on Saturday.
A former soldier who escaped from a London prison while awaiting trial on terrorism charges has been charged with absconding.
Daniel Khalife had escaped from Wandsworth prison after his four days on the run came to an end on Saturday as he was recaptured on Saturday.
Police say the 21-year-old former soldier is due to appear in Westminster Magistrates' Court on Monday.
Khalife had escaped on the bottom of a food delivery truck from Wandsworth Prison on Wednesday. The breakout ignited a storm of criticism as political opponents blamed the ruling Conservative party for incompetence.
Khalife, 21, is accused of planting fake bombs at a military base and of violating Britain’s Official Secrets Act by gathering information “that could be useful to an enemy.”
He was discharged from the British army after his arrest earlier this year and had denied the allegations. His trial is set for November.
London counter-terror police had offered a £20,000 (or about €23,000) reward for information leading to his arrest.
