Well while I detest the man, if he's been a victim of brutality by prison guards then that's a different emotion. It should not happen. I now some people would like Shariah law in the UK, but I don't.
Compensation to prisoners for what ever reason should always be directed towards the victims. I mean, there's sod all he could do with £20K, even if he had a legitimate case. However, it just looks like a vexatious case meant to get sympathy - "oo look, I'm the real victim here".
Sadly, he's probably got quite a bit of sympathy in some corners, if some opinion surveys of resident Muslims in the UK are to be believed.
