Men with histories of sexual violence are & # 39; more likely to be terrorists & # 39; so the police should follow them, according to the best claims of lawyers

  • Nazir Afzal, former chief officer of the crown, brought a link between abuse and terror
  • He said he feared for & # 39; radicalisers looking for men & # 39; who exhibit such behavior
  • Mr Afzal said that monitoring those guilty of domestic violence can help to limit the list of risky terror suspects

Men with histories of domestic violence should be followed in the fight against terrorism, a leading lawyer said.

Nazir Afzal, a former crown prosecutor, said that violent behavior toward women and girls is a & # 39; important factor & # 39; was about whether someone would probably develop extremist views.

He said he feared for & # 39; radicalisers looking for men & # 39; who exhibit such behavior. Mr. Afzal added that the police had to understand that if you tackle violence against women and girls, you can tackle all other problems.

Mr Afzal addressed an audience at Hay Festival on Friday and said that monitoring those guilty of domestic violence would help the security services to limit the list of risky terror suspects.

He explained: & # 39; There are such things as 25,000 people on the radar of the security forces and police in this country.

& # 39; We no longer have the resources. You have no idea what it takes to follow one person. But if we look for the signals, and one of them is their attitude towards women … then we will be in a much better place. & # 39;

Mr. Afzal, who is currently an adviser to the Welsh government on violence against women, added: "The question I ask is: why has it not been on the radar of police, state or authorities? Why does this state find it so difficult to appreciate a woman-unfriendly background of so many of these people? & # 39;

The Westminster Bridge, Manchester Arena, London Bridge and Finsbury Park attacks were all carried out by men with a history of domestic violence.
