Usman
Khan, 28, was given an indeterminate sentence for terrorism in 2012

But
this was quashed by the Court of Appeal who gave him a 16-year jail
term

He
was released automatically in December 2018 and was still tagged
yesterday

Boris
Johnson said it was a ‘mistake’ to release the terrorist who killed
two

A
furious political row broke out today after it was revealed that the
London Bridge terrorist was released automatically from prison last
year. Usman Khan, 28, was sentenced in 2012 after being arrested in
2010 for terrorism offences for his part in an al Qaeda-inspired
terror group that plotted to bomb the London Stock Exchange and kill
Boris Johnson. The Stoke-on-Trent-based radical, along with two
co-conspirators, originally received an indeterminate sentence for
public protection with a minimum of eight years behind bars – meaning
he could be kept indefinitely if he continued to pose a risk to the
public. However, this sentence was later quashed, after a ruling from
judges including Justice Leveson gave him a determinate 16-year jail
term, meaning he could be automatically released after eight years,
half of his sentence.
