The Lord Chief Justice for England and Wales, John Thomas, said that Khan “was determined to fulfil Islamic State’s cause for jihad by the carrying out of an act of terrorism within the UK.” So why was her sentenced reduced? Because of “her previous good character.” So the shattered, staggering, dhimmi UK can look forward to a new jihad attack from her all the sooner. How gloriously multicultural!
“Westfield ISIS attack plotter has sentence shortened despite courts saying she ‘was determined to fulfil cause,'” by Amita Joshi, John Shammas, Rachel Bishop, and Greg Wilford, GetWestLondon, July 8, 2016:
A woman who plotted an ISIS led terrorist attack in Westfield’s shopping centre with her husband has had her sentence reduced for “good behaviour.”
Sana Khan, 24, was jailed for 25 years after preparing terrorist acts on the anniversary of the London 7/7 bombings in the busy Hammersmith and Fulham spot with then husband Mohammed Rehman.
But she had her sentence reduce [sic] by two years at the Court of Appeal on Thursday (July 7), despite Lord Chief Justice for England and Wales, John Thomas, saying Khan “was determined to fulfil Islamic State’s cause for jihad by the carrying out of an act of terrorism within the UK.”
The couple’s plan was foiled when Khan’s husband asked Twitter followers: “Westfield shopping centre or London Underground?” after he tested a bomb in his back garden.
Rehman received a life sentence with a minimum of 27 years after he produced explosives and recorded a “martyrdom video” ahead of a possible suicide bombing in a crowded area of London.
During Khan’s sentencing at The Old Baily, Justice Jeremy Baker said he believed Khan had “full knowledge” of her husband’s terror plot and took a “full and active part in encouraging and planning [it].”
Delivering the verdict today, Lord Thomas said: “She was determined to fulfil Islamic State’s cause for jihad by the carrying out of an act of terrorism within the UK.
“She had provided funds to [Rehman], knowing the purpose for which he was using them.”
Explaining the reduction of Khan’s sentence, Lord Thomas referred to her “previous law-abiding life”, adding: “Taking into account her previous good character and her role in contrast to that of Rehman, the appropriate minimum term should have been 23 years.”…
