Introduced Emergency Terror Law to End Preliminary Release of Prisoners

Introduced Emergency Terror Law to End Preliminary Release of Prisoners”

Sudesh Amman, the perpetrator behind Sunday's stabbing attack on a London street, had been released from jail just days prior to the incident and was at the time under police counter-terrorism surveillance, the authorities said Sunday, as cited by The Telegraph.

He said that she is a nursery teacher at a nearby Catholic school and a prominent environmental campaigner.

Another parent added: "Mrs Luftner is great with all of the kids".

It came as ministers were accused today of ignoring warnings from security chiefs almost two years ago about the release of unsafe extremists.

The Daily Telegraph, by contrast, reports a "wave of terrorists" are due to be released from British prisons.

Earlier in the day Boris Johnson signalled his desire to change the law, insisting that automatic early release of terrorists "who obviously continue to pose a threat to the public has come to the end of its useful life".

Terror offenders will only be considered for release once they have served two-thirds of their sentence and with the approval of the Parole Board.

Only a handful of terrorists are considered to pose such a risk that they merit "the most extreme form of monitoring" available to police, placing Amman as one of the five most unsafe terror suspects prior to the attack.

In the Lords, former independent reviewer of terrorism legislation Lord Carlile of Berriew warned of a risk of legal challenge to the retrospective nature of the Government's proposals and urged the reintroduction of control orders.

But the main focus of controversy today, amid the inquiry into the attack by freed terrorist Amman, was the disclosure by Mr Jones that ministers had failed to act on warnings given in 2018.

"The attacker in the Streatham area in south London yesterday is an IS fighter, and he carried out the attack in response to a call to target nationals" of countries belonging to the global anti-IS coalition, the IS group's propaganda arm said in a statement released through the Telegram messaging application.

To which Ms Turner replied: "But we're talking about one individual and there's at least 3000 of them out there".

Eyewitness Gulled Bulhan, a 19-year-old student from Streatham, told Skynews that "I was crossing the road when I saw a man with a machete and silver canisters on his chest being chased by what I assume was an undercover police officer - as they were in civilian clothing".

She told ITV's This Morning: "We simply can not have individuals halfway through their sentence being released in a way in which they are not supervised and not assessed".

"That is why we are doing this... there will be a pipeline of prisoners".

Pressed on why it had taken so long, she added: "I've been Home Secretary for six months... these are the type of loopholes that we have had to shut down".
