Terrorist suspect who took an ‘active rifleman’ course in Poland is banned from returning to the UK
A TERROR suspect who took part in an “active shooting” course in Poland has been banned from returning to the UK.
The 37-year-old man was stripped of his British citizenship after MI5 warned he was “a threat to Britain’s national security”.
The Krav Maga Urban Extreme Active Shooter course advertised that it could improve “shooting basics”.
The Islamist fanatic – born in an unknown non-European country – already had serious convictions for firearms and drug offenses.
His citizenship was revoked in 2021 and the Special Immigration Appeals Commission denied his appeal.
The Home Office said it was “delighted” that the SIAC ruled in its favour.
He came to the UK in 2000 and obtained British citizenship two years later before completing his secondary education in South London.
But he veered into a life of crime and was sentenced to three years and four months in prison in 2007 for supplying Class A drugs.
In 2009, after his release from prison, he was arrested while fleeing a car that was involved in an accident after a police chase.
Officers found a blank pistol with an improvised barrel – with one round of live ammunition in the breach and five more in the magazine – near the car.
