One Percent - 15th February 2003, 18.17

The Daily Telegraph reported today that 304 suspected terrorists had been arrested since September 11th 2001 but only three had been convicted of an offence under the Terrorist Act. About forty have been charged with terrorist offences.

Such a record does not bode well for the government's policy on securing terrorists although the lack of an attack to take place indicates that the authorities have been successful so far. By the end of March, more criminals are likely to be serving a sentence for trying to kidnap Posh Spice than for belonging to a proscribed terrorist organisation.
