Terrorists should 'not necessarily' serve full jail term, says Jeremy Corbyn

Jeremy Corbyn is calling for a review of the prison system
Release of terrorists 'depends on the circumstances'
Why you can trust Sky News 
Jeremy Corbyn has told Sky News that convicted terrorists should "not necessarily" automatically serve their full prison sentences.
The Labour leader's comment comes in the wake of Friday's London Bridge terror attack, which left two people dead.
The attacker, 28-year-old Usman Khan, was a convicted terrorist who was wearing an electronic tag after being released halfway through a 16-year prison sentence for plotting to bomb the London Stock Exchange.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson has said violent offenders "must serve every day of their sentence, with no exceptions".
Speaking to Sky's Sophy Ridge, Mr Corbyn said there were lessons to be learned from the incident and there should be a "full investigation" into the circumstances around the attacker's prison sentence and subsequent release.
Pressed on whether convicted terrorists should serve their full prison sentences automatically, he said: "No, not necessarily".
The Labour leader continued: "I think it depends on the circumstances and it depends on the sentence but crucially depends on what they've done in prison.

"I think there has to be an examination of how our prison services work and crucially what happens to them on release from prison."
He added: "There has to be an examination of what goes on in the prison, because prisons ought to be a place where people are put away because of major serious offences but also a place where rehabilitation takes place."

Mr Corbyn said police "had no choice" but to shoot Khan dead as they were "stuck with a situation where there was a credible threat of a bomb belt around his body".
Speaking later at an event in York, he said people cannot be kept safe "on the cheap".
London Bridge attack: Boris Johnson says terrorists must serve 'every day of sentences'
Mr Corbyn added: "We have to understand that no government can prevent every attack. No-one would believe any political leader who said they could. But the government can act to make such acts of terror less, rather than more, likely."
His remarks follow the prime minister's assertion that automatic early release must end and other laws must change to strengthen security.
Mr Johnson claimed that because the "broken hung parliament was preoccupied with blocking Brexit", his government was unable to make the changes required to keep violent offenders and terrorists in jail for longer.
He said: "This system has got to end - I repeat, this has got to end, as I've been saying for four months."
"If you are convicted of a serious terrorist offence, there should be a mandatory minimum sentence of 14

Foreign terror suspect thought to have been planning an IS-style attack granted legal aid to fight extradition

A foreign terror suspect who the security services believe was planning to carry out an Islamic State terror attack in London has been granted legal aid to claim asylum in the UK.
The man, who can only be named as 03, was detained in London two years ago in a counter-terrorism operation involving MI5 and Scottland Yard.
At his flat police found an Islamic State 'passport', manuals on fighting with the terror group, terrorism propaganda vowing to kill Westerners and a chilling mocked-up photograph of a terrorist holding a rifle and picture of a London Routemaster bus with the words 'Sometimes you just got to get up and go.'
Officers also found a picture of the decapitated body of American journalist James Foley who was murdered by Islamic State executioner Jihadi John as well as a video featuring the now-dead leader of Islamic State Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. He also had pictures on his computer of the nine terrorists responsible for the Paris attack in 2015 which killed more than 100 people.
Last night the decision to grant the suspect with legal aid was criticised by Tory MP Andrew Bridgen, who said: "?My constituency is in the heart of middle Britain and I’m sure people living there will think that by using the legal aid system in this way he is abusing the hospitality, protection and privileges of this country."
According to court documents, MI5 believes the man 'aspires to engage in some form of attack-planning in the UK' and 'that the focus of an ISIL-inspired attack is most likely to be a high profile, heavily-populated city, such as London.'
The security services are concerned that he is planning to 'use explosives, firearms, vehicles, knives or other bladed weapons, blunt instruments; or any combination of these.'
In 2010 he was arrested outside Finsbury Park station with a surgical knife rolled up in his shorts. In September 2017, 03, who does not have a driving licence, was stopped by police while he was driving a 'high-powered Mercedes S500'.
The car had been obtained earlier by 03's brother, who was a passenger in the car and also didn't have a driving licence.
Police now believe he was preparing to use the car for an IS-inspired vehicle attack against pedestrians. After O3's arrest in November 2017 the Government began proceedings to deport him another country that for legal reasons cannot be named.
But O3 has been granted legal aid to challenge his deportation under human rights law on the grounds he needs international protection. His case is due to be heard, partly in secret, in June this year.
At his bail hearing last year lawyers for the Home Secretary said the risk '03 poses to national security is such that his continued detention is the only way to fully manage this threat whilst the appeal proceedings are ongoing.'
The government added:  'If released on bail, ..... there is a real risk that 03 will engage in terrorism-related activity of a very serious nature, thereby posing a significant threat to public safety. There was a "potentially limited window of opportunity within which [03] could orchestrate and execute his attack-plans prior to his deportation”, which heightened the risk he would pose on bail.'
O3 converted to Islam in 2017 and denies he an extremist aligned to IS. He says he was only holding the material found by the police to help him write a book which he hoped to turn into a film. But on December 20 2019 Mr Justice Lane said that there was enough evidence to show that O3 represented a threat to national security and denied him bail before his asylum appeal hearing in June.

Years ago I predicted that Europe would revert back centuries to walled off city-states – ruled by the sharia – a law unto itself.
By Chris Tomlinson,  Breitbart, January 22, 2020:
The confidential DGSI report maps out the 150 different neighbourhoods which consist of the notorious Seine-Saint-Denis no-go suburbs of Paris, the suburbs of Lyon and Marseille, all of which have had longstanding issues with radical Islam, newspaper Le Journal du Dimanche reports.
According to the paper, the report also lists the commune of Maubeuge along the Belgian border in the north of France, highlighting the fact that the Union of French Muslim Democrats (UDMF), a Muslim political party, reached as high as 40 per cent in polls and noted, “the situation is alarming.”
Last month, the UDFM announced it would be fielding lists of candidates for the upcoming municipal elections, set to be held in March.
The party said they would be putting up candidates in Mantes-la-Jolie, Les Mureaux and Guyancourt, and won 16.74 per cent of the vote in the district of Val-Fourre in Mantes-la-Jolie in last year’s European Parliament elections.
Areas such as Haute-Savoie or Ain, Annemasse, Bourg-en-Bresse, Oyonnax or Bourgoin-Jallieu have also come under the influence of radical Islamists.
President Emmanuel Macron has spoken out about ghettoisation and communitarianism, and the Élysée Palace has promised to provide a plan to tackle the issue ahead of the municipal elections.
Last year, largely as part of Macron’s overall plan to combat radical Islam, the French government shut down mosques and schools in 15 neighbourhoods across the country.
French Secretary of State for the Interior Laurent
Nuñez said that the government had closed a total of 130 drinking establishments, 12 places of worship, three schools and nine associations as part of the National Plan for the Prevention of Radicalization (PNPR) but did not name the neighbourhoods involved.
