Conservatives would strengthen sentencing measures, says UK Foreign Minister

LONDON: The British Foreign Minister said on Sunday that there should be times when people convicted of terrorism crimes should be imprisoned for life, suggesting that a conservative government would strengthen sentencing measures.

After a man who had previously been convicted of terrorism offences killed two people in London on Friday, Raab supported the prime minister Boris johnson The promise to end a practice when serious criminals can automatically leave prison early.

We have said that we would expect a minimum sentence of 14 years for serious terrorist crimes. We do not believe it is the case that everyone should necessarily be released, we believe that for some crimes they should be imprisoned for life, and we also believe that terrorist criminals should serve their full sentence, he said.
