Shadow Home Secretary Yvette Cooper has written to Home Secretary Theresa May urging the minister to re-introduce powers previously available under the predecessor to Tpims, known as control orders, to forcibly move a suspect across the country.
The call comes after two terror suspects subject to the new control orders managed to flee the authorities.
Mohamed was relocated to Ipswich, in Suffolk, while fellow Tpim subject and abscondee Ibrahim Magag, who vanished last year, had been forced to live in the West Country. In her letter, Ms Cooper said:
Powers to relocate terror suspects to other parts of the country must be revived, the Shadow Home Secretary Yvette Cooper said today in a letter to the Home Secretary Theresa May.
Ms Cooper is urging the minister to re-introduce powers previously available under terrorism prevention measures.
Her comments come after the escape of terror suspect Mohammed Ahmed Mohamed, who was last seen fleeing a London mosque in women's clothing 10 days ago.
