The pair have also been accused of urging others to support or obey Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the leader of brutal terror group. Choudary also allegedly told supporters to travel to territory controlled by the barbaric regime in Syria and Iraq.
The latest from the BBC
Mr Choudary, 49, and his co-accused, Mohammed Rahman, 32, will go on trial at the Old Bailey on 27 June. The men have already pleaded not guilty to inviting support for IS between 29 June 2014 and 6 March 2015. Mr Choudary, of Ilford, east London, and Mr Rahman, of Whitechapel, east London, are on bail with conditions.
And remember that Choudary was responsible for the setting up of Sharia 4 Belgium. He has blood on his hands for the events of Tuesday morning. He was sentenced by the Belgian courts in 2012 to a period of imprisonment. I always assumed that as he was not immediately taken into custody to serve that sentence it was some form of suspended sentence; however what I am reading about the inefficiency of Belgian security I suspect that he has been at large through lack of political will in both countries.
