Queen Elizabeth II of Great Britain has pardoned a 42-year-old man convicted of murder who, on November 29 last year, neutralized a terrorist with a narwhal tusk, The Daily Mail reported on Sunday.
On the day of the London Bridge terrorist attack, Stephen Gallant was released from prison for a day to attend a prisoner rehabilitation event. With the help of a tusk, which was given to Gallant by a civil servant, he managed to restrain the criminal who attacked passers-by and managed to kill two. Later, the police arrived at the scene, the attacker was killed, and a dummy explosive device was found on his body.
The final decision on the fate of Gallant must be made by the parole board.
Gallant was sentenced in 2005 to life in prison with a minimum of 17 years in prison for beating a firefighter to death in front of a pub. Along with him, another participant in the fight was convicted. On November 29, 2019, he was released for the first time since his detention.
