**Public Meeting**

 

JUSTICE FOR ZAKARIYYA ISLAM

DEMAND THAT ZAKARIYYA’S KILLER IS NOT RELEASED INTO THE COMMUNITY AS HE POSES 

A RISK TO THE VICTIM’S FAMILY AND TO THE PUBLIC

DEMAND A CHANGE IN THE LAW TO MAKE TRIBUNAL PROCESSES TRANSPARENT, AND TO 

BETTER SERVE THE NEEDS OF VICTIMS AND THEIR FAMILIES

 

Friday 9 November 2018

6:15pm-8:45pm

London Muslim Centre

1st Floor Hall, 46 Whitechapel Road, London E1

 

 

Zakariya Islam, a pillar of the community, a loving father to three young daughters, much loved, and highly respected in East London, was brutally and senselessly murdered in September 2015 during a frenzied knife attack in his office in Whitechapel. Rather than face a criminal trial and be punished for what was a premeditated, heinous act, his killer was sectioned under the Mental Health Act for treatment and avoided being dealt with appropriately by the Criminal Justice System.

 

We have now learnt that he may be released back into the community in November 2018. This is just three years after he brutally murdered Zakariyya – justice has not been served. He was previously arrested for stabbing, and the historic lack of appropriate care provision and close supervision makes his possible release now deeply worrying for the community especially against a knife crime epidemic in London.
