CORRECTION: On the 13th June 2017, Politicalite.com published an article “Tommy Robinson MOVED to Midlands prison with 71% Muslim Population.” as claimed by a Caolan Robertson, Tommy Robinson’s spokesman. It was, in fact, the wing that had a 70% Muslim population and not the Prison as a whole. We deeply apologise for any confusion.
TOMMY Robinson has reportedly been moved to a Midlands prison which has a 71% Muslim population.
Sources have told Politicalite that the prison he has been moved to is in the Midlands, reportedly to a prison in Leicester.
Paul Joseph Watson of InfoWars also added: “Inmates were banging on cell walls last night shouting death threats.”
According to PJW: “Protests were ignored. Tommy now fears for his safety.”
The Muslim population of HMP Featherstone in Wolverhampton, HMP Gartree in Leicestershire and HMP Leicester is high.
In 2009, security analysts warned that terror suspects held one prison, HMP Long Lartin – which previously held Al Qaida preacher Abu Qatada, described as Osama Bin Laden’s right-hand man in Europe – could be radicalising young Muslims.
Terror experts said: “There is a whole support network from outside prison walls for terrorists locked away in British prisons.
“They are sent religious texts, given links to extremist websites and handed all the tools they need to spread their fanatic ideology.”
“Prayer services inside some prisons are not monitored by guards, and inmates can speak in Arabic to avoid being detected.
“Men like Abu Qatada are able to reach out to young Muslims and influence them.
“Terrorists and extremists are hijacking Islam to radicalise thugs for their own criminal plans. It’s disgraceful and these men have to be stopped.”
HMP Long Lartin holds dozens of dangerous terror suspects and convicted Jihadists are also caged at the maximum security site.
One inmate at the time, Mohammed Hamid, 51, was dubbed Osama Bin London after he was found guilty of providing terrorist training and soliciting murder on camping trips to the Lake District.
A report published in 2009 flagged up a worrying gang culture inside Long Lartin, with some prisoners saying that they were converting to Islam for their own protection.
One inmate told visiting inspectors: “Yes, there is a gang culture here, which is becoming an issue. A lot of people are becoming Muslim because it is a bigger gang.”
Guards said the specialist unit developed to hold extremists had become an Islamic commune with nothing to stop terror suspects from plotting attacks and radicalising other inmates.
Another inspection report published last year revealed that suspected terrorists were able to talk to each other in Arabic without prison officers being able to understand them.
Steve Gough, the vice-chairman of the Prison Officers Association, spoke out after it was revealed that radical cleric Abu Qatada was influencing other inmates during his time at the jail.
“Unless we get the training and investment we need, our jails will become breeding grounds for extremists,” he warned.
