  2. Prisoner loses terrorism release challenge

    A prisoner has lost a challenge to legislation blocking the automatic early release of convicted terror offenders.

    Mohammed Zahir Khan, 42, was sentenced to four years in 2018 after admitting encouraging terrorism, dissemination of a terror publication and stirring up religious hatred.

    The Sunderland shopkeeper was due to be released in February after having served half his sentence, but this was blocked after the government brought in emergency legislation in the wake of terror attacks in London.

    Khan's lawyers argued this breached his human rights, but judges at the High Court dismissed his challenge.
