Three Islamic Terrorists referred for parole
Three jailed Islamic terrorists could soon be walking the streets of Britain again after being referred to the Parole Board.
All three were avid followers of hate preacher Anjem Choudary, who has inspired dozens of convicted terrorists and 15 plots over two decades.
The Muslim terrorists applying for release include one who plotted to behead a British soldier and another who planned bombing atrocities at major shopping centres.
A third who tried to make his way to Syria to join Islamic State was arrested at Heathrow.
WHO ARE THEY?
Parviz Khan (pictured above), 50, the ringleader of a gang who plotted to kidnap and behead a British soldier.
His gang was inspired by Anjem Choudary’s al-Muhajiroun network.
Khan, from Birmingham, was told in 2008 he must serve a minimum of 13 years, taking into account time awaiting trial, and is due up before the Parole Board in the next few months.
Jawad Akbar (pictured above), 36, from Crawley, West Sussex, who plotted to bomb British shopping centres.
He was jailed for life in 2007 for planning fertiliser bomb atrocities at shopping malls, including Bluewater in Kent, at nightclubs and in Britain's domestic gas network.
Police, who discovered a massive haul of 600kg of ammonium nitrate to be used in bombs, hidden in a storage facility, later revealed Akbar was radicalised by Anjem Choudary's Al-Muhajiroun terror network.
Zakariya Ashiq (pictured above), 26, from Coventry, was found guilty on two counts of preparing acts of terrorism in 2015.
His extremist sympathies were also exposed in WhatsApp messages. In one he wrote: ‘There is no life, there's no life without jihad.’
Police later told how he searched on his computer for phrases such as ‘IS beheading journalist’ and ‘44 ways to support jihad’ and speeches made by preacher Choudary.
He was arrested on his return to Heathrow Airport after making his way overland to Jordan but failing to enter Syria. He told officers he would ‘swim the English Channel’ to reach the IS ‘caliphate’.
The court heard he was a ‘Walter Mitty’ character and was sentenced to six years jail.
He was since released on licence but has now been recalled to jail and awaits a review by the Parole Board.
Anjem Choudary (pictured above) has inspired dozens of convicted terrorists and 15 plots over two decades.
On 6 September 2016, Choudary was sentenced to five years and six months in prison following conviction for inviting others to support the proscribed organisation ISIS.
He was released automatically on licence in October 2018 under conditions such as being banned from speaking in public and conversing with anyone from the media.
On 18 July 2021, Choudary's ban on speaking in public was lifted.
