A 24-year-old man has today admitted breaching his licence conditions after failing to tell police of onward travel on three separate occasions.
Ishaaq Hussain, from Chetwynd Road, Washwood Heath, was released from prison on an order made under Part 4 of the Anti-terrorism, Crime and Security Act 2011 after he pleaded guilty to terrorism offences in 2012.
He was arrested on 4 April at Gatwick Airport and today (Friday 26 August) he pleaded guilty to the breach and has been sentenced at the Old Bailey to 20 months in prison.
A Part 4 order is issued for individuals convicted of terrorism offences and sentenced to at least 12 months’ imprisonment or detention. Individuals are required to notify police of any changes to their personal details (including their address), any stay at another address for seven days or more and also any intended foreign travel of three days or more prior to travel.
If an individual breaches their condition, they face up to a five year sentence, a fine or both.
Assistant Chief Constable Marcus Beale said: “These orders give us more powers to effectively and appropriately manage those that have served a sentence and are now out of prison. We monitor the conditions and will seek the prosecution of convicted terrorists who break their conditions in order to keep the public safe.”
