According to the arrest warrant, the arrested had been trained in an Islamist camp on the Afghan-Pakistani border between November 2009 and February 2010, and was allegedly involved in the production of propaganda video.

The German Taliban Mujahideen extremist group's activity ended in 2010, as several of its leading members were killed. According to some reports, the group had split into a number of smaller factions.
