the terrorist attacker, who stabbed two people in Streatham today has been revealed as 18-year-old Jihadi who was released from prison less than a month ago after serving a sentence for 13 terror offences.
Sudesh Amman, 18, from Harrow, fantasised about carrying out a terror attack and also shared Al Qaeda propaganda on a WhatsApp group used by his family.
He had pleaded guilty to holding extremist terror documents and was sentenced to three-years in prison, however it’s been confirmed that Amman was released from prison just days ago after only serving half of his sentence.
Despite this, authorities were concerned of the attackers release, due to nature of his extremist views.
Today, while being under police surveillance, he launched a horrific knife rampage, while wearing a fake suicide vest.
Amman grabbed a knife from a shop in South London and stabbed a man and a woman during his attack, before he was shot down and killed by armed police.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson said the government would announce further plans for ‘fundamental changes to the system for dealing with those convicted of terrorism offences’ on Monday.
