Stansted 15 terrorism convictions remain a real concern – Chakrabarti

Shami Chakrabarti, Labour’s Shadow Attorney General, responding to the sentencing of the Stansted 15, said:

“It will be a matter of relief to all those who value peaceful dissent, proportionality and common sense that none of the Stanstead 15 have been imprisoned. But their terrorism convictions remain a real concern with serious consequences for their lives.

“The next Labour Government will review the statute book to better guarantee the right to peaceful dissent. We must end the hostile environment, not only for vulnerable people but also those who stand up for them.”
