Terror gang members to walk free following sentence reduction

London, Fri, 10 Feb 2012 ANI

London, Feb.10 (ANI): Members of a terror gang that plotted to bomb the London Stock Exchange could walk free in less than six years after they were given double the normal reduction in sentence for entering guilty pleas yesterday.


According to The Telegraph, the terrorists have admitted to having a hand in a plot to bomb London Stock Exchange and US Embassy.


A judge discounted the sentences of Mohammed Chowdhury, Shah Rahman, Gurukanth Desai and Abdul Miah by a fifth instead of the normal ten per cent for admitting guilt at the start of a trial because their serious offences meant they faced long prison terms


There was outrage from British lawmakers last week after the court indicated sentences for some of the members of the al Qaeda-inspired gang, which also plotted to target the Mayor of London and build terror training camps, would be less than six years.


And yesterday the judge said he had cut a fifth off planned sentences for the nine-strong group because their guilty pleas had "exposed them to a lengthy prison sentence" and saved the taxpayer a five-month trial. (ANI)
