Abu Hamza's US terror trial today heard that the Muslim preacher formerly worked for MI5 and co-managed a strip club in London's Soho.
Hamza's lawyer produced documents apparently from Scotland Yard that he said showed the radical cleric worked as an intermediary for the UK spy agency and had helped police defuse tensions with the Muslim community in Britain.
Hamza also told the New York court he had run a strip club in central London's party district after coming to the capital in the 1980s to "make money and enjoy myself", adding that some of the employment he gained was "on the wrong side of morality".
Hamza was extradited from the UK to America two years ago to face a string of terrorism charges, which he denies.
