Cooper: Strategy to deport Qatada has 'clearly failed'

People will be horrified that Abu Qatada is now out on Britain's streets rather than on a plane as the Home Secretary promised earlier this year.

Theresa May's strategy to deport Abu Qatada has clearly failed, despite all her confident predictions earlier this year. We need new action and a proper plan from Theresa May following her misplaced confidence.

Clearly the Government must mount the strongest possible appeal against this worrying decision.

– Yvette Cooper, shadow Home Secretary

Qatada neighbour angered at his high-profile return home

One of Qatada's London neighbours said there was "no way" the community would mix with the terror suspect following his prison release.

He said he had only ever seen the radical cleric twice, when he was praying at home.

If I didn't know about (the terrorism allegations) I might have knocked on his door. But when I came to know, (I thought) no way.

When asked what he felt about the large pack of photographers waiting outside, he replied:

It's very annoying for the whole community. My daughter and wife can't come out when it's this situation.

Abu Qatada released from prison

Terror suspect Abu Qatada has been released on bail from Long Lartin Prison in Worcestershire, a day after winning the latest round in his legal fight against deportation to Jordan.

Judges at the Special Immigration Appeals Commission yesterday ruled that evidence gained through torture could still be used against Qatada, denying him the right to a fair trial. The Home Secretary confirmed she will appeal the ruling.
