THE mum of a trainee lawyer who was stabbed to death has launched a crusade to halt Britain’s knife terror.
Jasna Badzak also wants a review of the decision to cut back police stop-and-search in London.
Her son Sven, 22, was killed by six thugs while on his way to a shop.
Jasna now wants tougher action to end the bloodbath — including more targeted stop and search operations.
And she is demanding Sven’s Law to ensure anyone caught carrying a blade is automatically jailed for 20 years.
London Mayor Sadiq Khan ordered a policy overhaul last year after figures showed black people were four times more likely to be stopped and searched than whites.
Financial analyst Jasna, 49, of Kilburn, North London, has set up a foundation in her son’s name.
She said: “Mr Khan has allowed stop-and-search to be turned into a race issue.
“But the streets of London have run red with the blood of young men like my son on his watch — and it’s time to honour my wonderful son’s desire to help everyone.”
A spokesman for Mr Khan said: “Stop-and-search is a vital tool in tackling violence in the capital — and it must be carried out professionally, and be intelligence-led, in order to help tackle crime and ensure all Londoners have trust and confidence in the police.”
