An airline pilot wrongly accused of training the September 11 hijackers is in line for a £2million Government payout, it emerged last night.
Lotfi Raissi, who is Algerian, was arrested by Scotland Yard ten days after the 2001 attacks on the Twin Towers and the Pentagon after the FBI issued an arrest warrant.
He was held for months without charge in a high security prison before a court ruled there was no evidence against him and he should not be extradited to the U.S.
Yesterday he was finally told that he was formally exonerated and would receive compensation.
The 36-year-old from Chiswick, West London, said: ‘I’m delighted. My life was destroyed, my career was destroyed.
