25-year-old Ali Harbi Ali has been charged  in an English court with the murder of British MP David Amess –  who served as the Chair of the Britain-Bermuda All-Party Parliamentary Group –  according to the UK media.

The Guardian’s report said, “Prosecutors have charged a man with the murder of Conservative MP Sir David Amess and the preparation of terrorist acts.

“Ali Harbi Ali, 25, was charged with murder over Amess’s death last Friday in Leigh-on-Sea in Essex, as part of an investigation led by Scotland Yard’s counter-terrorism command.

“The Crown Prosecution Service said it would argue to the court that the murder had “a terrorist connection, namely that it had both religious and ideological motivations”.

“Amess, 69, was the MP for Southend West and was repeatedly stabbed just after midday on Friday 15 October during a surgery for his constituents.

“He died in the church where the surgery was being held after being attacked by a person who police said they believed was acting alone.”
