In a statement, Abu Qatada's lawyers Birnberg Peirce said:
"When the Secretary of State elected to rush to the Special Immigration Appeals Commission three weeks ago, claiming that all of the ills prohibiting deportation had been cured in Jordan and that Mr Othman [Abu Qatada] could be immediately deported, with the intention it seems of achieving a contrived political spectacle, she did so on a basis that was wrong factually as well as legally.
"We trust that the courts here will see the claims made by the Secretary of State in their true light, an attempt to circumvent the binding decision of the European Court on facts that have not changed, despite desperate attempts to insist otherwise."
Terror suspect Abu Qatada has lost his attempt to make a final deportation appeal to European judges.
The prospect of Abu Qatada being sent to Jordan for trial is getting closer but it could still be some months away.
