Britain’s prime minister has ordered an urgent study of criminal penalties in an effort to ensure law is maintained after promising to provide 10,000 prisons and 20,000 additional police personnel.

Studies focusing on criminal penalties and some of Britain’s internal issues before leaving the European Union (EU) on October 31 this year have sparked speculation that Boris Johnson will announce the election.

The prime minister’s office said the review focused on whether it was appropriate for terrorists and sexual criminals to be punished for their crimes.

Johnson, who replaced Theresa May last month, said he wanted to reassure the system that punishment should be commensurate with the crime committed.

“We have seen instances where rapists and killers are released too early or offenders repeat crime once they are released.

“All this is over now. We want them arrested, jailed, punished and fully restored, ”he said in a statement.

He will chair discussions with senior police officers and leaders from probation services and police regarding the plan, Monday.

Earlier, he announced 10,000 additional prisons at a cost of 2.5 billion pounds and said police would be given more power to track and arrest the criminals.
