It is claimed that Daud Ali, who is married and has six children, is involved in a network allegedly involved in smuggling the banned stimulant known as khat from Britain to the US.

Based in St. Mellons, Cardiff, Mr Ali was an owner of a taxi firm that collects children from various south Wales schools. 

The accused, who has been charged under the Identity Documents Act for reportedly holding a fake Norwegian passport, was arrested with co-defendants, Adrian Wall, 49, and 30-year-old Liiban Nursharif, Tuesday. 

Police swooped on addresses in London, Coventry, and Cardiff in connection with the alleged smuggling crime. Magistrates granted Mr Wall bail with restrictions.

The three were arrested under the Terrorism Act and confirmed their names and addresses in Westminster Magistrates Court on Saturday.

They will next be appearing before Southwark Crown Court on the 6th July.

Another four suspected of smuggling illegal substances, a 45-year-old woman and three men aged 42, 45, and 47, are still being held under the Terrorism Act, according to Scotland Yard.
