Hate preacher Anjem Choudary to be freed despite warnings he is still ‘genuinely dangerous’

Choudary, 51, managed to stay on the right side of the law for two decades despite being a leading figure in the banned al-Muhajiroun group.

But he was jailed at the Old Bailey in September 2016 after he “crossed the line” by backing IS in a series of talks posted on YouTube.

Father-of-five Choudary, from Ilford, east London, was found guilty of drumming up support for the Islamic State (IS) terror group and was jailed for five-and-a-half years.

Five-and-a-half years means two years apparently.
