Prisoners: Terrorism

Question for Ministry of Justice

UIN HL470, tabled on 15 January 2020

To ask Her Majesty's Government what measures are in place to ensure that prisoners who may be considered jihadists or have links to similar terrorist organisations are kept segregated from prisoners who formerly served in the UK armed forces.

All terrorist and extremist risk prisoners, including those with known links to terrorist organisations, are managed through a specialist case management process. This process enables us to assess the impact an individual or individuals are having on the stability of prisons and the risk they present to others, including particular groups that may be at risk such as former UK armed forces prisoners and staff.
