They went to Syria to join ISIS in 2014 but after authorities failed to realise they had left, housing benefit was still being paid into his account, according to BBC News. 

The couple received almost £10,000 in taxpayers’ money which is thought to have all gone to IS.

Haddouchi was unable withdraw the money in Raqqa because of the lack of international banks.

But £3,000 was taken out of his account by accomplices in July 2015 and was handed to the man responsible for planning the November 2015 Paris attacks and 2016 Brussels bombings, Mohamed Abrini.

According to De Morgen, his wife’s father also put money into her account every month until October 2015.
