A 34-year-old convicted terrorist has been recalled to prison due to a suspected breach of his licence conditions.
West Midlands Police first arrested the male on Friday 30th November in the wake of the London Bridge terror attack, after officers from the West Midlands Counter Terrorism Unit carried out a search warrant at the males home address.
The search warrant was connected to what West Midlands Police described as: ‘a wider on-going review of existing licence conditions of convicted terrorist offenders’.
As a result of the search, the unnamed 34-year-old was arrested by the police on suspicion of preparation of terrorist acts contrary to section 5 of the Terrorism Act 2006.
A spokesperson for West Midlands Police confirmed that there is no information to suggest that the male was involved in the incident at London Bridge on Friday.
Officers also confirmed that there had been no immediate risk to public safety.
Enquiries by West Midlands CTU into the suspected terrorism offences are continuing.
