Govt wins Qatada right to appeal

Govt wins Qatada right to appeal

The Government has won the right to appeal against the decision to block Abu Qatada's deportation to Jordan.

Lawyers for the Home Office will be permitted to challenge the decision of the Special Immigration Appeals Commission, it was announced this evening. 

A senior judge had ruled that Jordan had not done enough to prove the radical cleric's retrial would be free of evidence obtained by torture.

"We are pleased that the Court of Appeal has granted us permission to appeal against Siac's decision on the deportation of Abu Qatada," a Home Office spokesperson said. 

"As we have said, the government strongly disagrees with Siac's ruling, and we remain committed to deporting this dangerous man."
