The High Court has ruled against convicted terrorist Mohammed Zahir Khan who demanded to be released early from prison after he claimed that the government’s new rule which mandates terrorists serve the majority of their sentences was a breach of his human rights and discriminated against Muslims.
Parliament passed emergency legislation in late February that ended the automatic release of terrorists halfway through standard time-limited sentences.
In early February, Suddesh Amman stabbed people in Streatham, London, days after being released from prison.
He was sentenced to four-and-a-half years in prison, and the Terrorist Offenders (Restriction of Early Release) Act was passed days before his expected automatic release date on March 1st, delaying his parole assessment until November.
Khan took his case to High Court, claiming that treating terrorist prisoners differently from other criminals was a breach of the European Convention on Human Rights.
