This is something that surfaced very soon after the attack. The former Czech deputy foreign minister, later ambassador to the UN, gave statements that he personally expelled a high raking Iraqi embassy official in Prague for being a covert foreign intelligence agent after the latter was discovered having met with Atta in the international lounge at the Prague airport in August 2001. There the Iraqi transferred a large amount of cash to Atta, sufficient to fund the completion of the September 11 attack.
Don't want to be difficult, but the know-nothings will attack any fact out of kilter or misquote or even misspelling just to kill off this story.

Al-Ani was expelled from the Czech Republic on April 22, 2001, for "activities exceeding his diplomatic duties" -- a common euphemism for espionage.
I don't know about the later date. I hope someone can clarify.
