UTTER MADNESS: David Moreland BLASTS Government “Endorsement” Of ISIS
A study produced by the Sentencing Council and reported in The Guardian found that more than 40% of the sentences for terrorism offences handed down over a 10-year period will have been served by the end of the year and the number of those released could be higher due to eligibility of prisoners for parole before completing their full sentence.
Anjem Choudary, who notoriously evaded incarceration for decades, is among those eligible for parole this year. Authorities are however struggling to cope. Richard Walton, who was head of Scotland Yard’s counter-terrorism command for five years from 2011 to 2016 told The Guardian:
“Terrorist prisoners released on licence place a resource burden on both specialist counter-terrorism detectives and on mainstream policing. A risk-management process is used to monitor those released on licence and the monitoring of high-risk offenders is extremely resource intensive.”
Ian Lawrence, General Secretary of Napo, the probation workers union, said:
“Our members are overworked and understaffed, resulting in enormous pressures on them to do an extremely challenging job.”
David Moreland, the UKIP Home Affairs Spokesman blasted the government:
“This is more utter madness, if this is allowed to go ahead, and these jihadis are then added to those that the government is allowing back into the UK, giving them housing and benefits, something which Sajid Javid says he supports, and this is taken into consideration alongside the huge number of Islamic recruits that are found in prisons up and down the country then in effect it amounts to an establishment endorsement of ISIS.
“Our security forces and police cannot handle the terrorists outside prison let alone those inside who are going to be coming out and those that flood across our borders. Rather than being helped by the government they are hamstrung at every door by politically correct policies and the madness of open borders. It is time to start putting British citizens and their safety first and for the government to start acting in our interests!”
