In connection with the change in the nature of threats to British society, it is necessary to check the antiterrorist strategy of the security services for its effectiveness. This was announced on Sunday by British Prime Minister Theresa May, reports Interfax.
"But as the nature of the threats we face becomes more complex, more fragmented, more secretive, especially in the Internet, the strategy must respond to them in a timely manner." Judging from what we know about the changing threat, we need to review the British antiterrorist strategy to make sure: the police and security services have all the powers that are needed, "said May.
At the same time, she allowed the possibility of tightening the terms of imprisonment for crimes related to terrorism.
The prime minister called for greater international cooperation in cyberspace in the fight against terrorism and extremism. She also mentioned the need to defeat the Islamic State grouping in Iraq and Syria.
