New terror suspect images issued

Police have issued new images of one of three terror suspects who went missing while subject to control orders.

In one, CCTV captures Cerie Bullivant, 24, reporting to Dagenham police station in east London, on Monday. He failed to attend the day after.

It is believed Bullivant and Lamine Adam, 26, and his brother Ibrahim, 20, want to kill UK troops abroad.

Ministers may now discuss opting out of human rights legislation to impose tougher control orders.

The orders were designed to stop the men travelling overseas because it was believed they wanted to leave the country for "terrorism-related purposes".

They had been required to surrender travel documents and report to a police station every day, but failed to turn up on Tuesday.

Fertiliser plot link

Home Secretary John Reid told the Commons on Thursday that the government could consider suspending some parts of the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR) so it can impose tougher control orders.

This could mean that suspects are subject to conditions that, under international treaty, breach human rights.

"We will consider other options - which include derogation - if we have exhausted ways of overturning previous judgments on this issue," Mr Reid said.

The Adams' brother, Anthony Garcia, is serving life for plotting explosions.

Garcia was one of five men jailed last month over a plot to target the UK with a fertiliser bomb.

During the trial, the Old Bailey heard that the plot's ringleader asked Lamine Adam and Garcia to buy the key bomb ingredient because their fairer skin would arouse less suspicion.

Mr Adam knew many of the key conspirators in that case, but was not prosecuted as part of the investigation.

Bullivant had previously appeared at the Old Bailey for breaching his control order.

House arrest

Police described Lamine Adam as of north African origin, 6ft, slim, with a light complexion, short dark brown hair and last seen with a short beard.

Ibrahim Adam is also of north African origin, 6ft 2in, slim with a light complexion and short dark brown hair.

They said Cerie Bullivant was white, 5ft 7in, slim with receding brown hair and brown eyes. He has recently cut his long hair short.

Six people have absconded from control orders since the system began in 2005.

The Home Office said 17 people were currently subject to the restrictions.

Legislation under the Prevention of Terrorism Act enables control orders - a type of house arrest - to be placed on those suspected of links to international terrorism.

People with any information are asked to call the confidential anti-terrorist hotline on 0800 789 321.
