Qatada protesters brand bail decision a 'disgrace'

Protesters who attended a small demonstration at Abu Qatada's London house have hit out at the ruling allowing him to be released on bail from prison while he fights his deportation case.

Jackie Chaunt, 50, who works in the area as an admin assistant and jeered his homecoming, said she believed the terror suspect should either be "in prison or back in his own country".

I work down the road and I'm not happy that he's back. He shouldn't be here. He was supposed to be deported to Jordan. It's a disgrace.

– Jackie Chaunt

Another protester, who lives nearby, said the whole community was concerned.

Everyone is on tenterhooks, worrying about what will happen. I'm not happy because of what he's been linked to. We're all paying for this as taxpayers. It's ridiculous.
