Terrorists fool the prison staff into believing they have changed
Affected Countries: united-kingdom;
Terrorist prisoners are pretending to deradicalise during rehabilitation programmes and the subterfuge makes them more of a risk when they are released, a report says.
The use of “false compliance” seems to have become more widespread, especially among jihadist prisoners, according to the International Centre for the Study of Radicalisation and Political Violence, at King’s College London.
Its report says that some extremists see prison as a test of their commitment to the cause and look to pass their time without incident or arousing the suspicions of the authorities. “This can be a major issue in relation to risk assessment and release arrangements,” the report says.
