Police to brief Muslims before terror raids

Times Online reported Police have agreed to consult a panel of Muslim leaders before mounting counter-terrorist raids or arrests. Members of the panel will offer their assessment of whether information police have on a suspect is too flimsy and will also consider the consequences on community relations of a raid.

They will also determine whether a raid would interfere with Jihad.
Members will be security vetted and will have to promise not to reveal any intelligence they are shown. They will not have to sign the Official Secrets Act.
So if they do decide to alert the Jihadists, they can't be prosecuted.
The first panel, expected to consist of four people, will be set up initially in London. Tomorrow representatives from police forces across England and Wales will decide whether to make the scheme national.
If you are going to do something this stupid, why not make it national.
