Theresa May 'ready to curb human rights laws to fight extremism'

Theresa May 'ready to curb human rights laws to fight extremism'

The investigation into Butt involved a "full package" of investigatory measures.

As of November 2016, seven people were subjected to TPims - six of whom were British nationals.

They grant the authorities the ability, lasting initially for one year but which can be extended to two, to implement a form of house arrest and relocate a subject up to 200 miles (320 kilometres) from their normal residence.

She replaced them with less restrictive T-pims.

Suspects can also access the internet while at home, but only if they let authorities have the password they use to log on to a device.

The prime minister's intervention came after days of tough questioning from politicians and the press about how cuts to police numbers she made as Home Secretary have made it more hard to protect Britain's streets and uproot radicalisation at community-level.

"This is exactly the time that human rights must be protected and cherished, not attacked and undermined", said the charity.

Conservative sources said they would not withdraw from the ECHR but would seek opt-outs called "derogations" from certain aspects.

Among other things, the law requires websites to keep customers' browsing history for up to a year and gives legal footing to existing, but murky, powers such as the hacking of computers and mobile phones.

Addressing supporters at a rally in Slough, she said they could include new measures to restrict the movements of suspects who have not been convicted of any offence as well as making it easier to deport foreign suspects.

The opposition Labour Party said that was "not the message that we should be sending".

Mr Johnson told the programme: 'When Jeremy Corbyn says it's all a function of police numbers, I have to say first of all I think that is wrong, police numbers in London have remained high.

Evidence of Cabinet tensions emerged when Amber Rudd, the Home Secretary, said: "It's not really for me or for the Foreign Secretary to say how that happened or what happened".

"And if our human rights laws get in the way of doing it, we will change the law so we can do it".

"A new approach may be needed through the expert knowledge of worldwide lawyers to develop a solution by defining the word "risk" in the convention so that governments are given a duty to protect the population against the interests of the individual, and the balance of evidence for this is not the same weighting that is used now in the courts".

Following the London Bridge attack on Saturday, May said she aimed to get tough on terror with her "enough is enough" speech. "Then says opposite later #weakandwobbly" she tweeted. In her remarks, she announced a review of counterterrorism policy, harsher sentences for terrorism offences, and an effort to crack down on "safe spaces" online and in self-segregated Muslim communities that can harbour extremism.

Starmer said from his experience it was "officers on the ground that often pick up key intelligence" and batted away a suggestion by Radio 4 presenter John Humphrys that Labour's argument on police cuts had run its course.
