London British police on Thursday charged a man in preparation for murder and terrorism for stabbing a Conservative MP who was killed last week when visiting a member in a church hall.
Officials say Ali Herbie Ali, a 25-year-old Englishman of Somali heritage, was charged with the death of David Eames. The incident shook the nation accustomed to one-on-one meetings with leaders and lively discussions on the issues of the day.
Nick Price of the prosecutor’s office said, “We submit in court that this murder had links to a terrorist, that is, it had both religious and idealistic motivations.” said. “He was also accused of preparing for terrorist acts.”
The death of Ames, who served in Parliament for nearly 40 years and was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II in 2015, raises concerns about security among British politicians who take pride in having access to their members. I grew up
A special session of the House of Commons on Monday urged social media giants to do more to stop the spread of online hate that plagues political discourse.
The killing came five years after Labor MP Joe Cox was shot and stabbed by a far-right terrorist. Cox was the first British MP to be killed since a peace deal that ended large-scale violence in Northern Ireland nearly 30 years ago.
Ames, 69, was a social conservative who opposed abortion, advocated for animal rights and strongly supported Britain’s withdrawal from the European Union.
Matt Jukes, a Metropolitan Police Department associate in the Special Operations Department, said the unit “will continue to build on our proceedings.” He said the detective analyzed computers, searched several addresses in London and verified CCTV footage as part of the investigation.
“It is true that we have not been arrested anywhere else, and we are not looking for anyone else in this case at this time,” he said.
