Theresa May granted permission to appeal against decision allowing Abu Qatada to stay in UK

London, Thu, 06 Dec 2012 ANI

London, Dec. 6 (ANI): UK Home Secretary Theresa May has reportedly been granted permission to appeal against the decision to allow radical preacher Abu Qatada to stay in the UK.

She has been given the go-ahead by the Court of Appeal with a date for a hearing in London yet to be set.

Last month the Special Immigration Appeals Commission (SIAC) ruled that Qatada should not be deported to Jordan where he was convicted of terror charges in his absence in 1999, the Daily Mail reports.

According to the paper, the SIAC judges ruled that evidence from Qatada's former co-defendants Abu Hawsher and Al-Hamasher, could be used against him in a retrial.

"The Secretary of State has not satisfied us that, on a retrial, there is no real risk that the impugned statements of Abu Hawsher and Al-Hamasher would be admitted probatively against the appellant," they said.

Following the SIAC decision, Mrs May immediately pledged to appeal and told the Commons that day that Jordan had given assurances about its legal processes, the paper said.

She said: "Qatada is a dangerous man, a suspected terrorist, who is accused of serious crime in his home country of Jordan."

"The British Government has obtained from the Jordanian government 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. We will therefore seek leave to appeal," she added. (ANI)
