Terror suspect Abu Qatada will be released from prison in Worcestershire today after winning the latest round in his legal fight against deportation to Jordan.
Judges at the Special Immigration Appeals Commission (SIAC) yesterday ruled that evidence gained through torture could still be used against him, denying him the right to a fair trial.
Earlier this year the Home Secretary said she was given assurances by the Middle East country that this wouldn't happen, and will appeal the SIAC ruling.
ITV News' Juliet Bremner reports:
Once described as Osama bin Laden's right-hand man in Europe, Qatada was convicted of terror charges in Jordan his absence in 1999.
After his release he will face the following bail conditions:
- The cleric will be subject to a 16-hour curfew and will be allowed out between 8am and 4pm
- He will be bailed to his home address
- Qatada will have to wear an electronic tag and will be subject to similar bail conditions to when he was previously released, including being barred from using the internet and being forbidden from contacting certain named people
Labour said yesterday's judgment was worrying and went against Government promises.
