[JURIST] Suspected terrorist Babar Ahmad [advocacy website] announced Wednesday through his political party that he will run for election to the UK parliament on May 5 from his cell in Woodhill Prison [official website] in Buckinghamshire. Ahmad has been indicted in the US [arrest warrant and criminal complaint, PDF] for operating a website that raised funds for Muslim militants in Afghanistan and Chechnya. Ahmad is running on the human rights platform of the tiny Peace and Progress Party [official website], which is also fielding Azmat Begg, father of former Guantanamo Bay detainee Moazzam Begg [JURIST report]. Corin Redgrave, founder of Peace and Progress, said that Ahmad will be a popular candidate because of the deep-seated sense of injustice about what has happened in Guantanamo. Reuters has more.
