80 convicted terrorists can be released in the UK
July 30, 2018 | Brainwave Science
Dozens of terrorists are set to be released in the UK after completing their sentences within the next few months. This situation has arisen because about 40% of the sentences for terrorism, financing terrorism, having terrorist information, or not disclosing information about terrorist acts issued between 2007 and 2016 will have ended by Christmas. Those eligible for parole include Anjem Choudary, an Islamist preacher, who was jailed for five years in 2016 for inviting people to support the Islamic State.
According to the statement of the Security Minister Ben Wallace, special resources would be put into monitoring convicted terrorists after their release if they are still deemed to pose a risk. And such monitoring inevitably will come at a cost both financial and through rediverting staff from other duties. Terrorist prisoners place a resource burden on both specialist counter-terrorism detectives and on mainstream policing.
Besides, according to the Probation Union, a 2016 review found extremism in British jails where 700 inmates are considered to have extremist views. Such results show that there was a real risk that a prisoner could be radicalized while they were behind bars.
Today terrorism is one of the biggest and the most dangerous problems. The war against terrorists is one of the biggest challenges to country’s National Security. But despite all activities of officials, the use of violence as a means to create terror among masses of people isn’t a rare problem today.
The question about dozens of convicted terrorists that can be released in a few months is a very actual among law enforcement agencies of the UK. Today they are faced with a necessity to use only the best tools to prevent the deterioration of the situation in the war against terrorism. And modern technologies can help them to solve this problem.
iCognative, offered only by Brainwave Science, is a remarkable technology distinctly suited for agencies looking to enhance, upgrade or supplement their traditional investigative practices. The technology is a one of a kind method designed to make detection and prosecution unavoidable for terrorists.
The main power of iCognative technology lies in its unique capacity to distinguish swiftly as well as accurately between a terrorist and an innocent person. In the current situation in the UK, iCognative can help law enforcement agencies to find out more about terrorist connections of prisoners, their plans, and connections with terrorist organizations. Specific screening application of iCognative technology can be a great addition to ensure that all people who are terrorist sympathizers, had been or have been in contact with terrorists or are planning to join extremist movements once released can all be rooted out.
To conduct a test, the test case needs to be built with information, used as stimuli. Such information should be confidential (known only to the investigative agents and the perpetrators). In this case we can use, for example, information regarding previous attacks (dates, places, used weapon); the names of terrorist organizations; pictures, and names of known members of terrorist organizations etc. This information will be used as stimuli in the form of words, phrases or pictures, depending on its availability. Such stimuli will be flashed to the suspect. iCognative system will record and analyze brain responses to each stimulus. And at the end of the test, the unique software will determine with 99.9% accuracy if the hidden from the public information is present or absent in the brain of the suspect.
The use of iCognative can help to find more information about terrorist connections and prevent future attacks. The technology can save time and efforts of law enforcement agencies during such operations. iCognative has a proven track record of supporting law enforcement agencies in protecting innocents and helping anti-terrorism agencies to capture terrorists within the country both before and after the attack
