The suspects were arrested by Poland’s Internal Security Agency (ABW) in the southwestern city of Wrocław on Tuesday, according to the gov.pl website.

Ewa Bialik, a spokeswoman for Poland’s National Public Prosecutor’s Office, was quoted as saying that the detained men have been charged with financially aiding “the international terrorist organisation known as Islamic State (ISIS).”

The two suspects have been remanded in custody for three months following a court order, Bialik added, as quoted by Poland’s PAP news agency.

They face up to 12 years in prison if found guilty of the charges, the Polish state news agency reported.
