AL-QAEDA’s highest ranking member to be jailed in the UK and the man at the centre of the terror groups ‘global web’ could be released in just months, it has been claimed.
The ‘terror boss’ called Rangzieb Ahmed reportedly had links to the terrorists behind the 7th July 2005 London Bombings, an attack that killed 52 people and injured 700.
He is also suspected of being in touch with the extremists behind the failed plot two weeks later to detonate more bombs in the capital.
Ahmed, 43, from Rochdale, will appear before parole board just a DECADE after he was sentenced to life, according to an exclusive story in The Sunday People.
He was caught with notebooks containing details of terror contacts in invisible ink.
Chris Phillips, the former Head of the National Counter Terrorism Security Office, told The Sunday People: “This is disgraceful. It seems as if the criminal justice system is working against the police.”
“They are letting unreformed terrorists back on the street.
“We haven’t got the police to deal with them. In many cases they have not been reformed and they are more dangerous than when they were convicted.”
Ahmed was arrested in Pakistan and became the first person convicted by a British court on a charge of directing a terrorist organisation.
The news comes just months after Anjem Choudary was released after serving less than half his five-year sentence for promoting ISIS.
