Whether an individual is arrested or prosecuted will always depend on the facts and circumstances of the case and is an operational decision for the police and Crown Prosecution Service.

Whether any specific act falls within the definition of terrorism and whether any individuals or groups have committed an offence will always depend on all facts and circumstances of the case. Prosecutions can only be sought where the Crown Prosecution Service is satisfied that there is sufficient evidence of any offence having been commissioned and that it is in the public interest to prosecute.</strong></p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>A UNSC resolution or the consent of a government are not the only potential bases in international law for the use of force. Other legal bases would include: individual or collective self-defence; and, in certain exceptional circumstances, in order to avert an overwhelming humanitarian catastrophe. ISIL continue to pose a direct threat to Iraq. They operate across the borders of Syria and Iraq, in a situation where the Government of Syria is unable or unwilling to take effective action to counter the threat posed by ISIL. Iraq has requested help to defend itself. The US have been clear that in carrying out military actions in Syria they are acting on the basis of both collective and individual self-defence. If the UK were to undertake military strikes in Syria we would only do so on a sound legal basis and that would depend on the facts on the ground at the time, for example in line with the US led international efforts in collective self defence pursuant to the Iraqi request of 20 September. The Prime Minister, my right hon. Friend the Member for Witney (Mr Cameron), has been clear that if the decision were made to take military action in Syria the government would return to the House of Commons. However, if there were a critical British interest at stake or there were the need to take urgent action to prevent a humanitarian catastrophe then it would be possible to order that and come straight to the House and explain afterwards.</p>
