He was later re-arrested on Sunday under Section 41 of the Terrorism Act 2000. Police have the power to detain him without charge for up to 14 days.
Saadallah is reported to have been known to M15 and was released from prison just 16 days ago. He is said to have been ‘a ticking timebomb’ who wanted to travel to Syria to fight and was on medication for post traumatic stress and a suspected personality disorder before his release.
