Foster carers of Parsons Green bomber sue Surrey Council for not warning them he was a jihadi ‘trained to kill by ISIS’

Ahmed Hassan – just a troubled young person

The foster carers of the Parsons Green bomber are taking legal action against the council that placed him in their home.

Iraqi teenage asylum seeker Ahmed Hassan, who pretended to engage with the anti-terrorism Prevent scheme as he plotted mass murder in London, was sentenced to life with a minimum term of 34 years at the Old Bailey last year.

Hassan’s foster parents Penny and Ron Jones, who were awarded an MBE in 2010, are suing Surrey County Council, claiming that the council presented him ‘merely as a troubled young person’ and did not disclose key information about the danger he posed.

Maybe they forgot!
