Streatham terrorist Sudesh Amman ‘retained extremist views’ after prison release


An inquest has been told that convicted terrorist Sudesh Amman was released from prison despite concerns by the authorities that he had retained his extremist views, just 10 days before he stabbed two passers by in a south London street before being shot dead by police.

Amman had been automatically released in January 2020 after serving two thirds of his sentence at Belmarsh prison, and was put under 24-hour police surveillance because of fears he could be a threat to the public.
