London Attacks : British terror unleash thorny debate on strategy

Posted June 07, 2017

THERESA MAY, the UK Prime Minister, has been branded "reckless and misinformed" by Amnesty International after she pledged yesterday (Tuesday 6 June) that her government would consider altering the Human Rights framework in the fight against terror.

As of November 2016, seven people were subjected to TPims - six of whom were British nationals. One of those they were most concerned about was Butt.

But controversially, she also outlined increased controls on extremists who the security services think may present a threat to public safety, but where there is not enough evidence to prosecute them. Introduced in 2005, the orders allowed the authorities to place individuals under 16-hour curfews, ban them from meeting other people as well as from using mobile phones and the Internet.

Theresa May had finally scrapped the control orders in 2010 when she was the home secretary.

Vijay Mallya drops in at Kohli event; Team India avoids him
A BCCI source present at the event confirmed that Kohli and the Indian team were "uncomfortable" due to Mallya's presence. And nearly everyone, except our captain who was host of the event, left the scene", a senior BCCI official told DNA.

"And the Human Rights Act did not get in the way of what we were doing".

This policy has the potential to cause splits within the Tory party, as different factions see the Human Rights Act as either a European interference or a key piece in the apparatus of the rule of law.

Among other things, the law requires websites to keep customers' browsing history for up to a year and gives legal footing to existing, but murky, powers such as the hacking of computers and mobile phones. This means figures such as Egyptian cleric Abu Hamza, who preached Islamic fundamentalism and militant Islamism, span out their appeals for years rather than face swift removal.

UK Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said earlier this week that British intelligence agencies had questions to answer, adding that people would be asking "How on Earth could we have let this guy or possibly more through the net?" "We have tried to make extremism something that is just not worth the risk, but despite all this we are clearly still generating jihadists". I mean making it easier for the authorities to deport foreign terror suspects to their own countries.

Summerhays takes advantage of Dufner collapse at Memorial
Things did not go according to plan for Dufner from the outset following four consecutive bogeys, starting at the second hole. Lingmerth, the 2015 champion at Muirfield Village, had a mixed round that included eight birdies, an eagle and three bogeys.

Mrs May told Sky News: "MI5 and the police have already said they would be reviewing how they dealt with Manchester and I would expect them to do exactly the same in relation to London Bridge".

"If our human rights laws stop us from doing it, we will change the laws so we can do it", she said to cheers and applause at an election rally.

"A new approach may be needed through the expert knowledge of worldwide lawyers to develop a solution by defining the word "risk" in the convention so that governments are given a duty to protect the population against the interests of the individual, and the balance of evidence for this is not the same weighting that is used now in the courts".

Her comments were criticised as political and brought concerns about whether, if re-elected, her anti-terrorism plans could be effective and also protect civil liberties.

He said "there could be more" slain foreign terrorists that authorities have not identified. He said that militant leader Isnilon Hapilon is believed to be still in Marawi .

"All she would do is reduce freedom, not terrorism". I worked very closely with the security and intelligence services and we prosecuted very, very serious criminals.
