If these accusations are true, then they should be substantiated and the men convicted and jailed. If they cannot be substantiated - i.e. they are based on the same reliable "intelligence" that brought us imaginary WMD in Iraq, an imaginary bomb belt on Jean Charles de Menezes and imaginary chemical weapons in Forest Gate - then the government should shut up.
The men are innocent until proven guilty and the ministers making these serious allegations are abusing their public position.
To attack the judiciary in this way for enforcing the law is very dangerous. Our judges are not perfect, but they are currently the last line of defence we have against the burgeoning British police state.
