Hate preacher Anjem Choudary vows to carry on ranting after his release from prison and sparks security fears

Choudary, 51, is due to be freed next month after serving half of a 5½-year sentence for breaking terror laws by encouraging support of Islamic State.

A recorded interview obtained by The Sun reveals he intends to continue attempting to indoctrinate impressionable young Muslims.

In the interview, conducted just before he was jailed in 2016, Choudary boasted: “Life will continue for me as before.

“It’s just a gap isn’t it….all the things that we were doing before – there is no reason to stop them because we were not doing anything illegal.

“The police have really chanced their arm with this, which is really just a freedom of speech issue.

“If they fail here is no reason why we cannot continue – you have the double jeopardy law anyway, don’t you?

“You can’t be done for the same thing again can you?

“We can re-publish those speeches, as they are fine and start circulating them again.”

Choudary, a father of five, was a founder member of the now banned group al-Muhajiroun. He once said he wanted to see the black ISIS flag hanging over Downing Street.

Choudary’s followers included IS knife maniac Khuram Butt, part of the London Bridge terror cell who murdered eight innocent bystanders in June last year.

Other disciples include Michael Adebolajo and Michael Adebowale, the killers of Fusilier Lee Rigby, who was mowed down and butchered outside his barracks in south London in 2013.

In 2016, at the sentencing of Choudary and co-accused Mohammed Misanur Rahman, Mr Justice Holroyde said they showed “contempt for the values of the democracy in which we live”.

Prisons minister Rory Stewart said Choudary is “a deeply pernicious, destabilising influence — a genuinely dangerous person. We will be watching him.”
