According to foreign media reports, the British governments plan to introduce an emergency anti-terrorism bill from the beginning of February has been signed into force by the queen on the 26th. Since November 2019, there have been a number of terrorist attacks planned by automatically released terrorists in the UK. According to the law, about 50 terrorists with more than half of their sentences will not be released, but will continue to serve their sentences for evaluation.
According to the BBC and Russia satellite news agency, Nigel Evans, deputy speaker of the house of Commons, informed members of the parliament of this news: I hereby inform the house of Commons that under the Royal assentact act of 1967, the queen has issued Royal permission for the 2020 terrorist automatic release Restriction Act
According to the report, after the law came into force, about 50 terrorists who have more than half their sentences waiting for automatic release will remain in prison, and the parole committee will assess whether they are eligible for release after completing two-thirds of their sentences.
On February 2, a knife attack in southern London killed Sudesh Amman on the spot after stabbing two people, less than half a month after his automatic release. In addition, Usman Khan, the murderer of the London Bridge terrorist attack on November 29, 2019, is also an automatically released terrorist.
After the attacks on February 2, the British government worried that other terrorists would be released in the same way, including Mohammed Zahir Khan, who was scheduled to be released on February 28. This person has published inflammatory information on social platforms to incite terrorist attacks.
Robert Buckland, the British attorney general, said earlier: we should not release terrorists at will and allow them to attack and hurt people in the street. Protecting the people is the first priority of the government, and our attitude is very clear: we are fed up with it. Buckland also stressed that only when the prison term of prisoners is coming to an end and the independent parole Committees assessment is passed can they be released, and they will be subject to the most strict surveillance and control once released.
