Government pledges changes in the way convicted terrorists are dealt with

SHARE:

Following the Streatham Terrorist attack upon members of the public, Prime Minister Boris Johnson has pledged changes to the system for dealing with those convicted of terrorism. 

Sudesh Amman, 20, was released around a week ago after serving half of his sentence of three years and four months for terror offences.

He was under active police surveillance at the time of the attack on Streatham High Road.

In May 2018, Amman was arrested by armed police and charged with 10 terror-related offences: seven of making a record of information likely to be useful to a person committing or preparing an act of terrorism and three of dissemination of terrorist publications.

The PM said:

"My thoughts are with the injured victims and their loved ones following the horrific attack in Streatham.

"I want to pay tribute to the speed and bravery of the police who responded and confronted the attacker – preventing further injuries and violence – and all of the emergency services who came to the aid of others.

"An investigation is taking place at pace to establish the full facts of what happened, and the Government will provide all necessary support to the police and security services as this work goes on.

"Following the awful events at Fishmonger’s Hall, we have moved quickly to introduce a package of measures to strengthen every element of our response to terrorism – including longer prison sentences and more money for the police.

"Tomorrow, we will announce further plans for fundamental changes to the system for dealing with those convicted of terrorism offences."

Detectives from the Met’s Counter Terrorism Command continue to carry out fast-time enquiries into the circumstances of the attack.

Search warrants are being carried out at two residential addresses in the south London and Bishop's Stortford areas respectively. No arrests have been made and enquiries continue at pace. 

DAC Lucy D’Orsi from the Metropolitan Police said:

"At approximately 1400hrs on Sunday, 2 February two people were stabbed in Streatham High Road, Lambeth.

"As part of a proactive Counter Terrorism operation, armed officers were in immediate attendance and shot a male suspect, who was pronounced dead at the scene. A third person also received minor injuries - believed to have been caused by glass following the discharge of the police firearm.

"A device was found strapped to the body of the suspect and specialist officers attended.

"Cordons were put in place and it was quickly established that this was a hoax device.

"Three victims have been taken to south London hospitals. One man is being treated as life-threatening, one woman has non-life threatening injuries and another woman has minor injuries.

"My thoughts are with the victims and their loved-ones at this time.

"The situation has been contained and officers from the Met’s Counter Terrorism Command are now leading an investigation into the incident. The incident was quickly declared as a terrorist incident and we believe it to be Islamist-related.

"However as you would expect, officers continue to work in the area to ensure there is no continuing danger to the public and that all evidence is gathered. Streatham High Road remains closed at this time, and cordons are in place. We will reopen these as soon as we can.

"We would like to thank the numerous members of the public who assisted officers and ambulance staff this afternoon following a very confusing and alarming incident.

"Public safety is obviously our top priority and to reassure the public we will be enhancing police patrols in the area.

"I would ask anyone with information, images or footage of the incident that this be shared with our investigation team. Image and video can be shared via the UK Police Image appeal website at www.ukpoliceimageappeal.com.

"Anyone with information that could assist with the investigation can call police, in confidence, on 0800 789 321. In an emergency call 999.

"I would also like to reiterate our earlier pleas for common sense and restraint in circulating pictures and videos of this incident – including images of the officers involved and of the victims.

"I would also ask the public to continue to remain vigilant and report any concerns they have to police."
