Council house ‘bribes’ for UK terror suspects: Returning ISIS fighters are to be offered taxpayer-funded homes and counselling to stop them carrying out attacks in Britain
- Operation Constrain could allow fanatics to jump council house waiting lists
- Up to 20,000 extremists previously investigated by MI5 will be targeted
- The highly contentious nationwide programme is due to start next year
Terror suspects including jihadis returning from fighting in Syria are to be offered taxpayer-funded homes, counselling and help finding jobs to stop them carrying out attacks in Britain.
The top-secret Government strategy, codenamed Operation Constrain, could even allow fanatics to jump to the top of council house waiting lists.
Official documents seen by The Mail on Sunday reveal that up to 20,000 extremists previously investigated by MI5 will be targeted with what critics last night described as ‘bribes’ aimed at turning them away from extremism.
