:unsure: Quite a remarkable coincidence that his ex-prison mates were there.
'Some of the guys who were on top of him were ex-prisoners and they had all been in the Fishmongers' Hall. The guy told me he was in prison with the attacker.'

Probably because the event was for ex-prisoners and prison staff.

The Learning Together programme, according to its website, seeks to “bring together people in criminal justice and higher education institutions to study alongside each other in inclusive and transformative learning communities”. Launched in 2014 by Dr Ruth Armstrong and Dr Amy Ludlow of the Faculty of Criminology, the programme works with 23 partner institutions alongside Cambridge University, and offers courses in over a dozen prisons.

Yesterday’s Learning Together conference, which was described as “a day to celebrate, connect and collaborate”, was attended by prisoners and probation staff, alongside students, academics and practitioners within the fields of criminology and rehabilitation.

Everyone who had been involved in a Learning Together partnership across the UK was invited to attend.

The terrorist and the guy who apprehended him were both let out of prison early..
They were both released as per the law, the terrorist was released after 8 years (which is what he was sentenced to serve by the appeal court) and the other guy was sentenced to 15 years in 2004 (you do the maths there).

So just indicates that the prison reform system does absolutely nothing for terrorists and they need to stay locked up for good.

Reminds of that one who got a huge payout from the UK government for being in Gitmo, then went and blew himself up in Syria.

He is a murderer and convenient cannon fodder happy to lend a helping hand

You can't just lock everyone up for life.
Unfortunately not. Of course, there's also the small issue that a large number of moderates become radicalised in prison, too. So damned if you, damned if you don't lock them up.
