Convicted terrorists should remain in isolation in prison says MP

Conservative MP Tobias Ellwood has said convicted terrorists should be “isolated” from other prisoners to prevent the spread of their ideology to others.

Ellwood was hailed a hero after trying to save the life of the murdered policeman, PC Keith Palmer in March 2017 after the Westminster Bridge terror attack.

Speaking to BBC Breakfast the MP said it is “wrong” that the convicted Streatham terrorist, Sudesh Amman was allowed to leave Belmarsh prison so early.

He said, “Individuals are being radicalised in prison and I would encourage justice secretary Robert Buckland to look at isolating those who have been radicalised so they can’t then spread their message to others in prison who perhaps would otherwise be safer being kept away from them.”

Ellwood added that this problem will “not go away” any time soon, he added, “It’s very sad to see London being affected like this again.

“Many questions will be asked about this automatic early release.”

Amman was freed from HMP Belmarsh after serving only half of his three year and four-month sentence after possessing bomb making manuals.
