United Kingdom wants to isolate the Islamist extremists in special units in the prisons with tight security to limit their ability to radicalization of other prisoners.
Critics of this new measure argue that special units can be turned into a kind of “bed” where the most dangerous terrorists will be able to exchange their ideas and to form networks, which will be made a new mistake
The Minister for justice of Great Britain, Liz Tracy said that the authorities are taking this action to limit the spread of radical ideology among the other prisoners, and in statement of British “BBC” noted that there is a small number of individuals who really must be placed in separate units of the prisons with separate provision under them.
“We are introducing a special units in prisons to accommodate such individuals there”, specify the British minister, Liz Tracy.
Liz Tracy said to the managers of the prisons and all employees where they will be accommodated radical Islamists will need special training in order to eradicate extremism.
United Kingdom introduces new measures after the revision of the presence of extremism in prisons that is conducted under the guidance of former prison manager Ian Echison, and today will be released, transferred to United Kingdom media.
Critics of this new measure argue that special units can be turned into a kind of “bed” where the most dangerous terrorists will be able to exchange their ideas and to form networks, which will be made a new mistake, similar to that in Northern Ireland in the 80’s of the last century.
Minister Liz Tracy, said that lesson is learned from Northern Ireland and said that all the risks are under control, so as to establish small units within existing prisons will be formed and a new Directorate for Security and Counter Terrorism which will take care of the prisoners not to cooperate to each other.
