A Dewsbury man arrested as part of an investigation into charity fraud related to donations to Syria has been released on bail today (Wednesday).

The man, 35, was one of eight arrested at addresses across the UK on Tuesday morning by Kent Police after more than £45,000 was seized at the Port of Dover on December 23, 2012.

The money – £31,816, plus 8,310 euros (£6,857) and 10,700 US dollars (£6,413) – which had come from four UK-based charities, was taken by police who believed it could be used for criminal or terrorist activities.
