Terror suspect Abu Qatada has been denied bail, and will stay in prison for his remaining months in the UK.
He is currently fighting extradition to Jordan, where he is wanted on terrorist charges
Mr Justice Mitting ruled today that it would be "exceptionally problematic" to allow the radical preacher to remain on London's streets during the Olympic Games.
The judge also cited the "very high level of demand in resources" highlighted by Home Office barrister Robin Tam QC.
Conservative MP Chris Heaton-Harris tweeted his views on the decision:
The Director of Communications for the Home Office tweeted to say he was pleased with the decision made by the court.
Chris Bryant MP, Labour's shadow immigration minister said it was a relief that Qatada will remain in prison for the Olympics, but hit out at the Home Secretary Theresa May for causing the process to be further delayed.
Qatada will remain in a high-security British prison for "at least five months" as he launches fresh action against the Government's bid to deport him.
Mr Justice Mitting told lawyers that another hearing could take place on July 24 but said the full tribunal would not begin until October 10.
Around eight BNP supporters gathered outside the court to protest about Qatada, who was described by a judge as Osama bin Laden's right-hand man in Europe.
Repeated failed attempts by UK governments over the last 10 years to deport the radical cleric have cost nearly £1 million in legal fees, Government figures show.
