Radical Cleric, Alleged Terror Fundraiser Abu Qatada Wins Deportation Battle

posted on November 13, 2012

At CNN Mallory Simon reports that Abu Qatada, whom the U.S. and the U.K. sought to have deported from the U.K. to face terrorist charges in Jordan, has won another legal battle blocking his deportation. While the British and American governments have accused him of raising money for terrorist organizations, court appeals have kept him in the U.K. “In January, the European Court of Human Rights blocked Britain from sending him to Jordan because of fears that evidence obtained by torture could be used against him at the trial planned by the Middle Eastern country.”
