NEW counter-terrorism legislation should be amended to overturn guidance which suggests terrorist crimes can be glorified if they happened more than two decades ago, MPs have heard.

The DUP’s defence spokesman Gavin Robinson, pictured above, said a 20-year limit was introduced in guidance to police services for glorification of past offences when the 2006 Terrorsim Act was brought forward.

He told the commons it was “appalling” that people can “legally eulogise such vile acts” two decades on as he urged security minister Ben Wallace to rectify the situation in the Counter-Terrorism and Border Security Bill.

Mr Robinson, speaking during the bill’s second reading debate, said when the 2006 Act was enacted, there was “some discussion about not only encouraging those to engage in terrorism but glorification of past offences and a 20-year limit was put upon such provision”.
