The man who was initially identified as the London terror attacker is still in prison, according to his solicitor.
Hate preacher Abu Izzadeen – formally know as Trevor Brooks – was falsely named as the attacker in early reports.
However, it later became clear the reports may be false with Channel 4’s senior home affairs correspondent Simon Israel confirming it ‘may be we’re not as certain about the identity of the attacker as we thought’.
According to the Mail Online, senior security sources and Izzadeen’s lawyer both denied he could be the attacker.
The show later carried confirmation from Izzadeen’s brother that he was still in jail.
Who is Abu Izzadeen?
The former BT electrician, who was once known as Trevor Brooks, is a former BT Electrician who converted to Islam aged 17.
He was jailed for two years in January 2016 for breaching the Terrorism Act by leaving the UK illegally.
He was found in Hungary on a train to Bucharest in November 2015 having been smuggled out of the UK via Dover.
The convicted terrorist was deported back to Britain and then jailed – where is still situation today.
In 2008, Izzadeen was jailed for four and a half years for terror-related offences.
