Cerie Bullivant, from human rights charity Cage, has recently spoken to Anjem Choudary about his views on Islamic State (IS) and said Choudary's statements on IS have raised questions.
A resident who lives near a terraced house where Anjem Choudary was believed to have lived in Walthamstow, east London, said the preacher and his family had left the property about a week ago.
She said Choudary had lived there for around two years and claimed there was police activity at the weekend after he moved out.
The woman, who did not wish to be named, said:
- Earlier this week, it was reported that Choudary said he has no sympathy for Alan Henning, a volunteer aid worker who was captured in Syria
- Choudary is reported to have said: "In the Qaran it is not allowed for you to feel sorry for non Muslims. I don't feel sorry for him."
- Choudary, who co-founded the now banned group al-Muhajiroun, has had contact with a number of worshippers who have later gone on to be convicted of terrorism
- Michael Adebolajo and Michael Adebowale, who were both jailed earlier this year for the brutal slaying of Fusilier Lee Rigby, were both seen at demonstrations organised by al-Muhajiroun
- The group, which has changed names a number of times, was banned in the UK in 2010, and a study suggested that in the preceding 12 years 18% of Islamic extremists convicted of terror offences in the UK had current or former links with it
