Britain presses Jordan over Abu Qatada after deportation attempt blocked


www.guardian.co.uk

Britain has opened urgent talks with Jordan in an attempt to address the ruling by the European court of human rights last week blocking the deportation of terror suspect Abu Qatada from the UK.

The British ambassador to Jordan is pressing authorities in the country for a binding undertaking that Qatada, who is being held in Long Lartin maximum security prison in Worcestershire, would face a fair trial if he were sent back.

This story should be a Woody Alan comedy.
Since his illegal entry to the UK on a forged UAE passport in 1993 Abu Qatada has lived off the British government (in 2009 he recieved 8000 pounds a year because of a bad back, and was living in an Edwardian 4 bedroomed house worth 800,000 pounds in west London!!!)..even though wanted for terrorism in Algeria, the United States, Belgium, Spain, France, Germany, Italy and his native Jordan.
Now Britain is Refusing to hand him over because they say his trial would be based on confessions under torture.
Maybe the UK is frightened he'll tell them something else, like who his real paymasters are..maybe MI6 for example.

It would'nt be the first time MI6 have looked after their own to protect their own arses.
For example Haroon Rashid Aswat, when he was arrested for trying to start a training centre in the US, Seattle prosecutors were told by the Department of Justice not to touch him as he "worked for British Intelligence".

Actually Britain wants to deport him, even your quote of the original source implies this !!!. It was the European courst that said he could not because of the probability of him facing torture.

I agree with European human rights legislation to a huge degree BUT people like this show that the rules need amending. There comes a point when an individuals actions, basically, stick up two fingers to the very legislation they rely on for their own well being! Sorry but that's when you get shipped back to your own couintry no matter what.

There is another way out : if it is true that he is wanted for terrorism in other european countries then he can shipped there for trial and then put in jail.

What Britan says publically and what it does behind closed doors are two completely different things.
It's been out of the bag now for a while that British Intelligence has been recruiting and using 'radical islamists' across the UK and worldwide to infultrate jihadist groups.
Its a dangerous game that has without doubt cost lives, how many we'll never know.

Apparantly French Intelligence call London LONDONISTAN, because of the number of known jihadists, secular and terror groups who live their freely.
The French government know of what they call the 'covenant', which was an agreemnet made between islamist extremist groups and the government in the 90's.
It was a "you let us live here without bother and we wont bomb you" agreement.

LONDONISTAN: ITS ORIGINS AND INTERPRETATIONS
The word ‘Londonistan’ was coined by the French counter-intelligence service in 1995. It referred to the UK government’s policy of allowing radical Islamists from across the globe to set up political offices in London, thereby escaping pressure from counter-terrorist agencies in their home countries. The immediate provocation for the epithet was Britain’s refusal to extradite Algerian terrorist suspect Rachid Ramda, who had been granted asylum in the country since 1992. British officials purported to be concerned over Ramda’s human rights, and whether he would be granted a fair trial in France. For a full decade, they dragged their feet on the issue. After the 7 July 2005 (7/7) bombings in London however, these concerns vanished and Ramda was extradited within six months.

Through the latter half of the 1990s, ‘Londonistan’ became a popular buzzword in the international counter-terrorism fraternity. A number of countries found themselves frustrated in their efforts to combat terrorist groups (both religious and secular) that were based in the UK. India, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Turkey, the United States, Sri Lanka and Peru, all found the UK government sympathetic but uncooperative when it came to counter-terrorism.
