The UK to pass a law to stop the early release of terrorists by Feb. 27: government source
Britain plans to pass emergency legislation by Feb. 27 to prevent convicted terrorists from automatically being released from prison half-way through their sentence, a government source said on Wednesday.
Justice Minister Robert Buckland announced plans for the law earlier this week after an Islamist attacker stabbed two people in London on Sunday. Sudesh Amman had been released from prison half-way through his term on Jan. 23, despite still being considered a risk by authorities.
He was shot dead by police officers who had placed him under covert surveillance.
