ABU DHABI // A man who is accused of providing money and equipment to terrorist groups claimed “he had never heard of” the organisations.

A R N, 44, a Libyan, is accused if providing the Tarablus Martyr’s Battalion and Fajr Libya’s terrorist groups — both of which are affiliated with the Muslim Brotherhood — with financial aid, equipment, vehicles, wireless devices, electrical generators and military uniforms.

The Federal Supreme Court heard he also filtered funds to the Al Karama terrorist group.

When questioned, the defendant said the accusations were not true and that this was the first time he heard of such organisations.

The case was adjourned to December 14.
