…but not by much:
Trevor Mulindwa, 25, was originally released in June 2018 after he was given a six-year sentence in December 2015 for preparing to go to Somalia with the intention of joining terrorist group Al-Shabaab.
Following his release from prison, he was on probation license and subject to a 15-year-long Part 4 Counter Terrorism Act 2008 notification order.
I know my maths ain’t great, but 2018 – 2015 isn’t 6. Is it?
Under the notification order he was obliged to tell police if he buys a motor vehicle, but on 13 November 2019, police identified he was the owner of a moped he had not informed them he had.
That same day they seized the vehicle and the next day they arrested Mulindwa at his home address, from which they recovered the keys for the moped.
Police searched the vehicle and found an internet-enabled smart phone locked in the top box. By having this phone, Mulindwa was also in breach of his probation license.
Well, imagine my shocked face!
He was immediately recalled to prison.
Hurrah! But wait! For how long?
The judge sentenced him to eight weeks’ imprisonment and ordered him to pay a £122 victim surcharge.
