Hello Alex,

Hello Allex,

Alex Watts : Hello
JACUSTOMER-eeiv5av6- :

My question refers to the recent trial of the murderers of Lee Rigby and the interview on Radio 4 of Anjem Chaudry where he effectively backs the killing. I know that in certain countries, for example Italy or Germany, you can be prosecuted for supporting a criminal act and I would like to know if there are similar provisions in UK law. Thanks.

Alex Watts : But in this case he is being interviewed and giving his view.
Alex Watts : I am sorry if this is not the answer you want and is certainly not the one I want to give, as I also find this offensive, but I have a duty to be honest.
Alex Watts : Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
