A jailed jihadi was put in isolation at the top-security Woodhill jail after he led other Muslim inmates in chanting Allahu Akbar and threatened to decapitate guards.
According to The Daily Mail, staff were warned not to be left alone with Nadir Syed to “prevent the risk of hostage-taking.” Syed had also claimed he would “radicalise the whole unit” in another prison.
Syed, who is serving a life sentence for planning to behead a poppy-seller, successfully sued the Ministry of Justice. A judge has ruled that isolating the extremist was “in violation of his human rights”.
Tory MP Philip Davies was rattled by the decision. “It’s all right for the judge respecting the human rights of the prisoner, but what about the human rights of the prison staff he was threatening to behead? The reason why so many people have lost faith in the justice system is because you get ridiculous decisions like that.”
Perhaps the best solution isn't segregation, but instead, to put him in with a more general non-Muslim population.
