Abu Qatada, a preacher, will not be deported to Jordon the courts have confirmed on Wednesday, 27th March. The latest bid to send Qatada away from British soil has been refused.
The news comes following Home Secretary Theresa May’s efforts to see Qatada sent to Jordon. The Court of Appeal has reportedly said that he will remain in the UK on the grounds of human rights.
Qatada is expected to face terror offence charges in Jordon once he returns there.
Judges, although stating Qatada may be perceived as being a ‘dangerous’ individual, would presumably not want to go against human right laws.
A spokesperson from the Home Office said: “This is not the end of the road, and the Government remains determined to deport Abu Qatada. We will consider this judgment carefully and plan to seek leave to appeal.
“In the meantime we continue to work with the Jordanians to address the outstanding legal issues preventing deportation.”
Qatada was sent back to prison recently, after being set free from jail early last year on specific conditions of bail.
