British judicial authorities have charged a 25-year-old man with premeditated murder in the murder of British MP David Amis, last week, according to the Royal Prosecution Office and police.

Ali Harbi Ali, a 25-year-old British-Somali who was arrested last Friday at the scene of the attack in Les-on-Sea, east London, faces a separate charge of preparing to commit terrorist acts.

Ames, a 69-year-old father of five, was stabbed to death while meeting supporters inside a church in his constituency, in the second such crime in the past five years targeting a British lawmaker.

Members of the House of Commons paid tribute to the veteran Conservative MP with calls for better security for the nation’s elected representatives.

Labor lawmaker Jo Cox was killed while meeting voters in the run-up to the Brexit vote in June 2016.

“The murder of Ames, which is linked to terrorism and has religious and ideological motives, Ali was also charged with preparing to commit terrorist acts,” Nick Price, head of the Special Crimes and Counter-Terrorism Unit, said, citing lawyers.

He pointed out that this comes after reviewing the evidence collected by the Metropolitan Police in its investigations.

Matt Jukes, Assistant Commissioner of Metropolitan Police, London, said: “The investigation into the case is still ongoing.”

“There has been extensive speculation in the media regarding the background, history and motives of the man who has been charged,” he said in a statement. I understand the huge level of public interest in this issue.”

“But now an indictment has been brought, and it is important that everyone exercise restraint when commenting (about the crime) in public, to ensure that future court proceedings are not compromised in any way.”
