Good news: Bin Laden’s right-hand man in Europe back on UK streets after winning deportation battle

Because they might be mean to him in Jordan, poor lamb.

“Abu Qatada back on streets after being given bail,” by Tom Whitehead for the Telegraph, November 12 (thanks to all who sent this in):

Terror suspect Abu Qatada is to be released on bail back on the streets of Britain after winning his battle against deportation to Jordan, a judge has ruled.

A senior immigration judge ruled the hate preacher should not be sent to Jordan, where he faces terror charges, because he stands the risk of evidence being used against him that was obtained by torture.

Qatada will be released on bail tomorrow, subject to a 16 hour a day curfew and other restrictions, according to the Special Immigration Appeals Commission.

The judge said Theresa May, the Home Secretary, had failed to satisfy the court that Qatada would be given a fair trial.

The ruling is a humiliation for Mrs May who personally travelled to Jordan to obtain assurances that torture evidence would not be used.

But Siac effectively dismissed those guarantees in an appeal brought by Qatada.

The decision comes despite the fact the British courts have previously ruled that it is safe to return Qatada, who was once described at Osama bin Laden’s right hand man in Europe.

The case was only back at Siac because the European Court of Human Rights ruled earlier this year that he should not be deported because of the risk of torture evidence.

Today”s decision will fuel the row over European judges effectively dictating domestic law.

The Home Office said it would now take the case to the Court of Appeal and Mrs May was due to make an emergency statement in the House of Commons this afternoon.

A spokesman said: “The Government strongly disagrees with this ruling. We have obtained assurances not just in relation to the treatment of Qatada himself, but about the quality of the legal processes that would be followed throughout his trial.

“Indeed, today’s ruling found that ‘the Jordanian judiciary, like their executive counterparts, are determined to ensure that the appellant will receive, and be seen to receive, a fair retrial’.

“We will therefore seek leave to appeal today’s decision.”

Siac found that Qatada’s right to a fair trial would be breached because evidence obtained via torture could be used during his re-trial in Jordan.

Qatada had claimed that there was a risk that he himself would be tortured or badly treated in Jordan, however this was rejected.

His legal team also maintained that even if he was acquitted at re-trial, he could be kept in prison under Jordanian law if the authorities decided he was “a danger to the people”, therefore breaching his right to liberty.

This was also rejected.

During a seven-day hearing last month, the commission heard evidence from Professor Beverley Milton-Edwards, who has studied Jordan’s political situation for 25 years.

She said Qatada remained a “controversial” figure in Jordan and a fair trial was unlikely.

Qatada, who is said to have wide and high-level support among extremists, featured in hate sermons found on videos in the flat of one of the September 11 bombers.

He has challenged and ultimately thwarted every attempt by the Government over the last decade to put him on a plane….

    Welcome to the new ‘enlightenment’ where jihadists, savages and haters are the protected class! We really don’t want much for our countries anymore.

    Does Queen Dowager Noor (that Lindsay-Wagneresque blonde airhead) know that her regime is torturing Muslims? More importantly, does Hillary Clinton know that Queen Noor’s regime is torturing Muslims?

    ………………………….

    Madness, and suicidal madness.

    Especially the fact that he is *out on bail*. How can it be considered safe for the British public to have a dangerous Jihadist out on the streets?

    It seems good Infidels in Britain better get used to being humiliated”then it won’t come as such a shock when they are treated like dirt by their coming Muslim overlords…

    And no, I *don’t* mean the above as surrender. But if civilized Britain continues down this path, that’s *exactly* what it will be.

    Britain *never* should have submitted to the frequently undemocratic and Jihad-enabling EU.

    Well, *of course* dangerous Jihadists have a “right to liberty”. Their victims, not so much…

    From the article: “During a seven-day hearing last month, the commission heard evidence from Professor Beverley Milton-Edwards, who has studied Jordan’s political situation for 25 years.

    She said Qatada remained a “controversial” figure in Jordan and a fair trial was unlikely…”.

    I’d like to know more about Professor Beverley Milton-Edwards.

    Here are the results of a preliminary google trawl, for people to contemplate.

    First, she’s the author of something called “The Israeli-Palestinian Conflict: A People’s War”:

    and here’s her CV

    http://www.qub.ac.uk/schools/SchoolofPoliticsInternationalStudiesandPhilosophy/Staff/Milton-Edwards/

    and here she is at the Guardian:

    http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2002/sep/11/september112002.september1126

    I don’t trust her.

    I would hazard the guess that she belongs to the European manifestation of what ‘Hugh Fitzgerald’, former regular contributor here, used to call ‘MESA nostra’.

    Dear Jihad Watch readers:

    In Scandinavia; Iranian Christians who make it inside the borders of those nations…. are finding themselves deported back to Iran in large numbers when it is discovered they are not “muslims who face Islamaphobia.” They are sent back to face almost certain persecution or death. All the while muslims can enter Scandinavia, get on welfare immediately and begin rampages of rape, vandalism, theft and murder while getting tax-payer benefits.

    Rape and never go hungry! Vandalize and be sure you always have a roof over your head! Steal and get free education! Murder and get a financial stipend where that you can spend at shopping centers and malls! Welcome to the west muslims and deport you to your deaths Christians!

    Bridging the above facts to the article above is so sadly easy. This mad man mastermind of unspeakable violence just isn’t getting sent to Jordan where he is viewed as a ciminal (by Jordan… not the most human rights friendly place on the planet… AND EVEN JORDAN WANTS A PIECE OF THIS MONSTER). Deported? NO! Instead he is virtually freed and can go about his business of plotting murder and destruction.

    While elsewhere in the UK… Tommy Robinson who stands up for freedom is rotting in prison. The UK Legal Establishment were afraid that Mr. Islamadoodle would face torture and unfairness in Jordan?

    Well what the hell is Robinson experiencing in his British homeland? Non-existence charges and being separated from his family for the upcoming Christmas holiday. Robinson spent days in a violent muslim section cellblock and shared a cell with muslims.

    If this poor man has not actually been raped by his cell mates I’m sure he was threatened with sexual assault. If not sodomized he was probably beaten up. Has anyone been able to physically see Tommy? If he IS NOT covered in bruises and abrasions then I would be very surprised.

    So, I thought Scandinavia was going nutso when this once prosperous region of Europe sent Mid-Eastern Christians to their deported doom and protected MoHAMmed’s followers. What could be more nuts than that?

    Well, Great Britain keeping Tommy Robinson behind bars and letting Abu Qatada back loose on the streets if the UK. Soon to be the UKK (the United Koranic Kingdom).

    It is probably true that he can’t receive a fair trial in Jordan and therefore proper that he should not be deported to Jordan. In the case of such serious crimes, however, that shouldn’t prevent him from being tried by the UK or in an international court. Failing that, he should be deported to the Palestinian Authority since he was born in Bethlehem.

    Aaarrgh !!!

    Yet again, camoron and may show their utter wetness and pusillanimity. They don’t give a damn about **our** safety, just so they can continue kowtowing to Brussels.

    If this piece of scum targets anyone, I sincerely hope it’s may and camoron. Only when their own wretched skins are in danger will they do anything.

    **Why** haven’t they got the simple guts just to ignore the EU ? What are they going to do, send in the tanks ?

    camoron and may must be trousering nice big backhanders. Traitorous scum.

    Sometimes I think I really am going to have a stroke.

    Once upon a time didn’t the UK forbid Geert Wilders and Mike Savage from setting foot in the UK?….the UK is in denial about the truths of Islam…

    DDA, thanks for the troubling background information on Professor Beverley Milton-Edwards. I have to admit, none of this surprises me.

    Dhimmitude in action…
