Osborne, from Cardiff, was arrested on suspicion of commission, preparation or instigation of terrorism, including murder and attempted murder.
“I was speaking to the people at Finsbury Park mosque, who invited us in, who were there when the attack happened, and what was impressive is numerous people said they wouldn’t let it stop them from getting on with their daily lives”. Despite the fact that the mosque had been awarded for its efforts in fighting Islamic extremism, Guandolo claimed that it had regularly preached violence “while the British government and British law enforcement does nothing”.
“He was cursing Muslims and saying he would do some damage”, according to a regular at the pub quoted by The Sun.
“I’m sorry that my brother has been that troubled, that it has taken him to this level of troubledness”, said the suspect’s sister Nicola Osborne.
A auto and knife attack on March 22 in London killed four pedestrians on Westminster Bridge and a police officer guarding the British parliament.
“London is diverse, welcoming, vibrant and compassionate”, she said. He also got medical care for Osborne as well as the other victims. “I’m not going to defend him but he’s my son and it’s a bad, awful shock”, she said.
“He has been so normal”.
His mother, Christine Osborne, 72, told ITV News her son was a “complex” person, adding: “I’m not going to defend him but you know he’s my son and it’s a bad awful shock and it’s not just robbing the bank, it’s an atrocity”.
Speaking to faith leaders during a visit to the Muslim Welfare House, Charles said he felt joy at being with them “despite the very sad, unfortunate circumstances” and that he remembered with “great fondness” his visit there 30 years ago. “Our hearts go out to the people who have been injured”.
“It’s madness. It is obviously sheer madness”, he said.
Some neighbours described a normal but loud character.
A 48-year-old man was overpowered by Muslim bystanders and was restrained until he was arrested by police officers who arrived within minutes. “But we need to long-term, really seriously address the issues of far right extremism and not limit it to one group, one entity, we really need to come together and address this issue of Islamophobia in this society”.
Rather than expressing remorse, Guandolo said that his “first professional response” to this tragedy “is not to believe at face value anything the Muslims at the scene are reporting”. “I am a Muslim”.
