Robinson, 36, is now believed to have been transferred to maximum security prison Belmarsh, which currently houses Wikileaks founder Julian Assange and a number of people convicted of terror offences.
In 2016, a former Muslim inmate of Belmarsh told the London Evening Standard that “There were so many would-be jihadists in there I felt like an intruder at a jihadi training camp.”
Terrorists were said to be “very popular and had enormous influence… treated like celebrities by the other inmates,” and non-Muslims accused of insulting Islam at risk of having their cells broken into and being subject to serious assaults.
The whistleblower said he “watched how prison officers seemingly took no action, leaving new inmates like myself with the impression that the real people in charge were not the warders, but a terrifying group of radical Islamists known as ‘the Brothers’ or ‘the Akhi’, which is Arabic for brother. ”
The previous year, it was reported that Belmarsh was one of several prisons where radical Muslims were said to be forcing non-Muslims to either convert to Islam or pay a so-called “jizya” — a tax levied on non-Muslims in Islamic states under sharia law.
Speaking to BlazeTV ahead of his sentencing, Robinson said: “I genuinely, hand on heart, I believe I’ll be killed in this prison sentence.”
