Qatada denied bail

Qatada denied bail
The radical cleric Abu Qatada has been denied bail as he appeals deportation to Jordan to face terrorism charges.

Mr Qatada, who is currently being held in a high-security prison, had taken the case to a special immigration appeals commission, where it was revealed his appeal against the deportation will not be heard until October.

The presiding judge said the pressure on security forces between now and October was a factor in his rejection of the bail application, saying: “It would be wrong for me to take that risk.”

The Home Office has welcomed the decision, releasing a statement saying: “Qatada is a dangerous man and we are pleased the court agreed with us that he should remain behind bars before he is deported.”
