Sudesh Amman Wiki
Sudesh Amman Biography
Who is Sudesh Amman?
A terrorist attack could have been prevented if the perpetrator had been called to prison after purchasing items used to forge a suicide belt, according to an investigation.
Sudesh Amman was killed by surveillance officers following the attack in Streatham, south London, last February.
The 20-year-old convicted terrorist stabbed two people shortly after being released from jail. They both survived.
The HM Prison and Probation Service could have sent Amman to jail, the investigation jury of the Royal Courts of Justice found.
On January 31, 2020, two days before the attack, undercover agents spotted Amman buying four small bottles of Irn-Bru, kitchen towels and Poundland packing tape, items they feared could be used to make a deceptive suicide belt. .

The police and MI5 agents were so concerned about Amman that they held an emergency meeting to discuss the possibility of arresting the newly released terrorist.
However, the HM Prison and Probation Service (HMPS) decided not to return him to prison. Instead, Amman was placed under armed surveillance 24 hours a day.
The senior investigating officer in the case denied suggestions from the terrorist’s family that the police should have intervened and that the sting operation was a “massive failure,” saying instead that the Met’s actions on the day it struck prevented a greatest tragedy.
In the previously heard investigation there were concerns about the imminent release of the 20-year-old from HMP Belmarsh on January 23, 2020, midway through a 40-month sentence for preparing for and participating in acts of terrorism.
However, the governor rejected the request because the crime for which Amman was imprisoned could not justify an extension of his sentence.
