Prime Minister Boris Johnson Promises Tougher Prison Sentences
Prime Minister Boris Johnson Promises Tougher Prison Sentences. Prime Minister Boris Johnson has said that prison sentences will be stricter and longer if he wins the December 12 elections.
On Friday, a man convicted of terrorism and conditionally released hit people in the heart of London. He killed two and wounded three before he was killed.
Ministers and politicians, with eleven days to go before the polls, gave great opinions at the weekend about the length of prison sentences and the (un) desirability of conditional release.
The perpetrator Friday, Usman Khan, was inspired by al-Qaeda ten years ago and is busy planning a bomb attack on the London Stock Exchange, among other things. He was sentenced to sixteen years in prison for terrorism and was released conditionally after 2018 after serving about half of his sentence.
One of the “heroes” who resisted him on Friday at the London Bridge and protected passers-by, is a 42-year-old murderer sentenced to life imprisonment for a day on leave, British media reported.
