Jeremy Corbyn protested against extradition of terror suspects outside court as Anjem Choudary held second rally just yards away.

Jeremy Corbyn protested against the extradition of British terror suspects to the United States as Anjem Choudary , a mentor to the London Bridge attacker, led a rally for the same cause just yards away. Two of the men were aides to Osama bin Laden wanted in connection to the 1998 bombings of the US embassies in East Africa, whilst the other pair later pleaded guilty to providing material support for terrorists.

Corbyn has voted against 17 different terror laws in his 34-year career in parliament.

And here to back this up is a full list of all the votes he was against, plus two on which he abstained since he became an MP in 1983:

  • 1984 Prevention of Terrorism (Temporary Provisions) Act: Outlawed NI terror groups.
  • 1985 Updating the Prevention of Terrorism Act 1974: Gave emergency powers to police forces to quiz terror suspects travelling between Northern Ireland and Great Britain
  • 1989 Elected Authorities (Northern Ireland) Act 1989: Law that requires candidates for election in local and Northern Ireland Assembly to declare they will never support terrorism
  • 1989 Prevention of Terrorism (Temporary Provisions) Act: Banned support for the IRA and Irish National Liberation Army
  • 1989 Security Service Act: Established legal basis of the UK Security Service for the first time – giving security services the function of protecting the UK from terrorism
  • 1991 Northern Ireland (Emergency Provisions): Allowed police to search sites for weapons and arms
  • 1996 Northern Ireland (Emergency Provisions) Act: Banned possession of items for terrorists
  • 1998 Criminal Justice (Terrorism and Conspiracy) Act: Stricter punishment for being a member of terror group following the Omagh bombing
