 Dear prime minister,

I write on behalf of the British public in regards to our safety.

We respect the decision that the IPP was overturned, but strongly believe in many cases such as a terror offences this type of sentence should still be imposed to prevent reoffending as it is proven that The rehabilitation process is failing, this is putting the safety of the general public at serious risk.

In the recent case of Usman Khan it has showed that a in determinate sentence was and should have being imposed but this was overturned, which lead to another atrocity that could have been prevented.

In England and Wales, the imprisonment for public protection (IPP) sentence was a form of indeterminate sentence introduced by s.225 of the Criminal Justice Act 2003 (with effect from 2005) by the Home Secretary, David Blunkett, and abolished in 2012.


Convicted terrorists are leaving prison without undergoing any courses, it has also been proven that the prevent strategy isn’t fit for purpose. Terror laws need to be determined that are specifically for terrorists and cater to the safety of the general public making sure convicted terrorists are not able to serve their  sentence and be released to carry out another atrocity. The only way in which to do this would be to re write the law so anybody convicted in the United Kingdom for terror repeated offences would automatically handed a indeterminate sentence.

the primary concern for your self and the conservative government is to protect the general public. We believe this is the only way in which to prevent any more of these cases occurring and should be written into the law with immediate affect. 

yours sincerely,
