The sentencing of Neil MacGregor has been deferred for the fourth time. The psychology report concluded he has a mental disorder and is suitable for probation with treatment, while the social enquiry report stated he wasn’t. The case has been sent back to the social enquiry report writer to reassess in the light of the psychology report.
He’ll be in court again on 29th May. It would be worth pointing out that when it comes to the comparison with al-Qaeda influenced terrorists, some of them have had clear mental disorders too, but they still received harsh sentences. We are seeking clarification from the relevant authorities on the apparent discrepancies.
