The nine jihadists plotted to blow up the London Stock Exchange and kill Boris Johnson. UK releases murderous jihadis into society but bans voices for freedom like my colleagues and me. Of course, citizens are going to be slaughtered in the streets in cold blood.

Revealed: Six of London Bridge terrorist Usman Khan’s fellow Stock Exhange bomb plotters have also been freed from prison since 2012 – and another was freed only to be re-jailed after plotting a Lee Rigby-style attack

  • The nine jihadists who were jailed in 2012 were part of an al-Qaeda-inspired cell
  • One is still in prison and another was convicted over a further terror plot in 2017
  • Khan is dead, meaning six of the plotters are believed to be still on the streets

By Tim Stickings For Mailonline, 1 December 2019

Six of the eight terrorist plotters who were jailed along with London Bridge attacker Usman Khan in 2012 have also been freed from prison, it has emerged.

The nine jihadists were members of an al-Qaeda-inspired cell which plotted to blow up the London Stock Exchange and kill Boris Johnson.

One is still in prison, another was convicted for a further terror plot and Khan is dead – leaving six back on the streets, it is believed.

Three of the nine – Khan, Mohammad Shahjahan and Nazam Hussein – were initially handed indefinite prison terms, but the trio won an appeal in 2013 which changed them to fixed sentences.

Allowing their appeal, former press inquiry chair Lord Justice Leveson found they had been ‘wrongly characterised’ as more dangerous than the others.

Khan was released in December 2018 after serving half of his fixed sentence – and the other two have also been freed, The Sun on Sunday reported.

Of the others, four – Shah Mohammed Rahman, Omar Sharif Latif, Gurukanth Desai and Abdul Malik Miah – have also been released from prison.

Another plotter, Mohibur Rahman, was jailed again in 2017 for plotting a ‘Lee Rigby-style’ terror attack against the police or military.

That leaves Mohammed Moksudur Choudhury, who the Daily Telegraph reports is still in prison. It is unclear why, as half of his sentence would have elapsed by now.

It is also not clear when the various prisoners were released. Hussain’s revised sentence was the same as Khan’s, while Shahjahan – who was described at the time as the ringleader of the terror plot – received a longer sentence.

The nine men were arrested in 2010 and the time they had already served in custody was counted towards their prison sentences.

At the trial in 2012, Woolwich Crown Court heard how the nine jihadists had plotted an al-Qaeda-style attack to detonate a bomb at the London Stock Exchange.

In addition, a hand-written target list found at one of the plotters’ homes also included the names and addresses of the Dean of St Paul’s Cathedral, Boris Johnson who was then Mayor of London, two rabbis, and the US Embassy in London.

Khan, then aged 20, was secretly recorded talking about plans to recruit UK radicals to attend a training camp in Kashmir.

His home in Stoke-on-Trent was bugged as he discussed plans for a firearms training camp, which was to be disguised as a legitimate Islamic religious school, the court heard.

Some London and Cardiff-based members of the group discussed launching a ‘Mumbai-style’ atrocity, while the Stoke extremists talked about setting off pipe bombs in the toilets of two pubs in their home town.

The group was also linked to radical preacher Anjem Choudary by a mobile phone seized from an address of one of the plotters.

Prosecutor Andrew Edis QC said the jihadists had ‘decided that ultimately they would be responsible for very serious acts of terrorism’.

Passing sentence on February 9, 2012, Mr Justice Wilkie, said the plot was a ‘serious, long-term venture in terrorism’ that could also have resulted in atrocities in Britain.

Khan, Hussain and Shahjahan had had originally been handed indeterminate sentences after they admitted terrorist offences in 2012.

However, in 2013 Lord Justice Leveson wrote that the original decision had ‘wrongly characterised’ the trio as more dangerous than the others.

‘Although we recognise that training terrorists in the use of firearms could only lead to potential loss of life… the fulfilment of that goal was further removed and there were other obstacles,’ Leveson wrote.

In 2013, the Court of Appeal sentenced Shahjahan to 17 years and eight months and Khan and Hussain to 16 years, along with five-year extended licence periods.
