Dr Rizwaan Sabir is an Associate Professor in Criminology at Liverpool John Moores University in the UK. He specialises in the study of UK counterterrorism and counterinsurgency. He is author of the book, The Suspect: Counterterrorism, Islam and the Security State (Pluto Press, 2022).
Following his arrest by UK counterterrorism police, French publisher Ernest Moret was cleared of all charges. But this is not always the case for targets of the security case, particularly for those who are racialised, argues Rizwaan Sabir.
