Boris Johnson’s government is considering new measures to contain terror convicts after an Islamist freed from prison early stabbed civilians in Streatham, London, according to Breitbart News.
Sudesh Amman, 20, was under active surveillance when he began stabbing people in Streatham, having been released on license automatically halfway through an already short three-year sentence for terrorism offenses.
The attack was claimed by the Islamic State, the second to have been carried out by a terrorist freed from prison early in the last three months (the other being London Bridge killer Usman Khan).
Automatic release at the halfway point in a custodial sentence is standard for criminals in Britain. Boris Johnson has said he intends to enact new measures to toughen sentences for “serious” terrorists and violent and/or sexual and prevent them from being released early — but this will not prevent the existing cohort of released terrorists and terrorists due for release from targeting the public.
