Woman Arrested in Connection with Alleged Escape of Prisoner Daniel Khalife from HMP Wandsworth

Metropolitan Police detectives have made a significant development in their ongoing investigation into the alleged escape of prisoner Daniel Khalife from HMP Wandsworth last September. A 25-year-old woman was arrested at an address in east London on suspicion of assisting an offender. She was subsequently taken to a London police station and released on bail until late April.

Detective Chief Superintendent Gareth Rees, Head of Operations for the Met’s Counter Terrorism Command, leading the investigation, stated, “We continue to carry out a thorough investigation into the full circumstances of the alleged escape of Khalife, and we have now arrested two other people as part of this.”

The latest arrest follows that of a 24-year-old man on January 17, who was also suspected of assisting an offender. Both individuals remain on bail until late April. It’s crucial to note that neither the man nor the woman arrested are affiliated with the staff at HMP Wandsworth.

Daniel Khalife, the central figure in this case, is scheduled to go on trial at the Old Bailey in October 2024. Khalife has pleaded not guilty to charges related to his alleged escape from HMP Wandsworth and is awaiting trial for additional offences, including attempting to elicit information for terrorist activities and placing an article with explosive potential.

Detective Chief Superintendent Rees emphasised the importance of not sharing information that could prejudice future court proceedings, given Khalife’s pending trial. He urged the public to report any suspicious activity related to terrorism, reinforcing the significance of public cooperation in police investigations.

The Metropolitan Police continue to appeal for information, urging anyone with details relevant to the case to come forward. The investigation aims to unravel the full circumstances surrounding Khalife’s alleged escape and the subsequent charges he faces.
