Armed cops from the Metropolitan Police Service’s Counter Terrorism Command have nabbed a 37-year-old British man near the entrance of the Channel Tunnel in Coquelles, France amid fears that he is an Islamic State terrorist with links to Syria.
A spokesman for the force said: “He was arrested on suspicion of preparing for terrorist acts and membership of a proscribed organisation and detained under Police and Criminal Evidence powers.
“Whilst in police custody, he was subsequently detained under the Terrorism Act 2000.”
News of the arrest will remind the British public of the terrifying national security risks posed to the country by illegal immigration, with the suspect perhaps only being one boat or lorry ride away from walking the streets of Britain.
This site reported in recent days how local journalists near Dover had estimated that nearly two hundred unvetted illegal migrants had landed in the country in just one day, with the UK now on course to see 23,088 migrants arrive in the country by that one route alone in 2021 – the equivalent of 23 military battalions, five military brigades, or two army divisions.
Some bright spots have emerged, with the Supreme Court telling Jihadi bride Shamima Begum in February that she could not return to the UK to fight for her stripped citizenship rights.
But it’s a small consolation for Brits who have lost loved ones to brutal Islamist slaying in recent years, as the government continues to let convicted terrorists out of our prisons.
This site reported last month that 42 caged terrorists had been unleashed on our streets last year alone, with 45% of those locked up last year due for release within the next four years and an additional 30% due for release within a decade.
Even more shocking, one in five have been caged for a year or less, facing only a short stint on the inside before being let loose once again on Britain’s streets.
