UK Terror suspects like the ‘New Jihadi John’ face jail over new passport crackdown

Terror suspects who attempt to flee the country or fail to surrender their passports will face jail under new measures to toughen up restrictions after their arrest by police.

The Government has announced plans to create a new range of criminal offences which will aim to lock down suspected terrorists, including Islamic State sympathisers, if they are released on bail.

The new measures will make it a criminal offence to attempt to leave Britain, fail to surrender a passport or be in possession of someone else’s travel documents.

    Why don’t they just let them go and THEN revoke their passports so they can’t return?

    • I think they should.

        Indeed, why new laws, just use the old ones like losing your passport for fighting for a foreign nation.
