Jamshed Javeed is a radicalised chemistry teacher who is jailed for planning to join the Islamic State terrorist group.
Jamshed Javeed was jailed for six years in March 2015 for planning to travel from his Manchester home to Syria to join the Islamic State.
Despite being handed an extended sentence, the Parole Board cleared him for release last year when he was halfway through his sentence.
The announcement was made when it emerged Streatham attacker Sudesh Amman stabbed two people 10 days after he was released halfway through a prison sentence.
Javeed was initially thought to be eligible for release in March but officials confirmed he has already been freed from prison on licence.
The latest case in the controversy, Jamshed Javeed, was poised to travel to Syria in late 2013 but his family hid his passport in a desperate attempt to thwart his plans.
Despite learning his wife was pregnant, the Bolton secondary school teacher persisted with his plan after helping his younger brother make the trip. He provided money for flights to Syria, as well as clothing and equipment, before preparing to join them from Manchester. But he was arrested hours before he was set to leave the United Kingdom.
Police discovered he had researched prominent figures such as the radical clerics Abu Hamza and Abu Qatada, as well as the jihadi group al Nusra Front on the internet.
Javeed insisted he was travelling to support the people of Syria and not join the terror group when he admitted two counts of engaging in conduct in preparation of terrorist acts.
He was handed an extended sentence of nine years, six of those to be served behind bars with a three year licence period afterwards.
