Anjem Choudary is set to be released from prison as early as next week

EXTREMIST TO GO FREE

The radical preacher is due to be released after serving just half of his five and a half year sentence

JAILED hate preacher Anjem Choudary is set to be freed next week, The Sun can reveal.

The radical Islamist could be out as soon as Wednesday — with security services braced for a major operation to stop his terror group becoming active again.

Anjem Choudary, 51, once led the banned terror organisation al-Muhajiroun

Choudary, 51, has served half of a 5½-year term given in 2016 for inciting British jihadis to fight for IS.

He led banned terror organisation al-Muhajiroun, whose disciples included London Bridge attacker Khurram Butt as well as Michael Adebolajo and Michael Adebowale — the killers of Fusilier Lee Rigby.

Ministers admitted last month they were powerless to halt his release — despite prisons chief Rory Stewart branding him “a deeply pernicious, destabilising influence” and “a genuinely dangerous person”.

He insisted: “We’ll be watching him very carefully.”

The Sun understands that Choudary will be constantly monitored by the security services and police.

Whitehall sources said last night that his release was pencilled in for next Wednesday or Thursday.

Last night the Ministry of Justice declined to comment.
