Streatham Terrorist Told 'Not To Be Naughty' By Dad Before Attack

With 224 terrorist prisoners now in jail and eligible for release unless on life sentences, Sir Mark Rowley, who led United Kingdom counter-terrorism policing for four years to 2018, said: "I am sure tired officials will argue against this on matters of principle but if we were able to change the law retrospectively to enable retrial and conviction of the Stephen Lawrence murderers, why not take a similar approach to dealing with a pressing national security threat?" According to the news agency Xinhua, the final confirmation was done a few hours after the person was killed by the police.

Khan was also a Daesh sympathizer, who had been jailed for terrorism but released early.

Amman harmed 3 people in the attack on Streatham's chaotic high street - a woman in her 50 s who was handled and launched from university hospital; a female in her 20 s who was hurt by flying glass and a male who was feared to be in serious condition at the time - he is now recovering.

The issue of rehabilitating and monitoring former convicted terrorists stiffened in the wake of a November attack when a tag-wearing ex-prisoner stabbed to death two and injured three others.

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.

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

It emerged that Amman had recently been released from prison after serving half of his three year sentence for terror-related offences. Khan has also stated that he wasn't aware of his son's radicalisation.

In a further blow, however, the Government's terrorism watchdog, Jonathan Hall QC, told the Standard that the new system could backfire by leading to "cliff edge" releases under which terrorist offenders are released without any controls, if they are no longer freed on licence and let out instead at the end of their sentences.

Amman was 17 and living at home in Harrow, north London, with his mother and four younger siblings when he first began committing terrorism offences, according to authorities. If it weren't for the knife wounds on both sides being one, but because of the brilliance and speed of the police, but because of the excellent medical staff, we could have had a conversation today that a number of people lost their lives as a result of one Terrorist attack that does not have to have taken place.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson said he would announce Monday plans for "fundamental changes" to the system for dealing with convicted terrorists. "The difficulty, however, is to apply this retrospectively to the cohort of people who are now qualifying".

"We do think it's time to take action to ensure that people - irrespective of the law that we're bringing in - people in the current stream do not qualify automatically for early release".

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

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