Another Government setback in fight to deport Qatada

  • The Home Secretary's legal team argued Abu Qatada was a "truly dangerous" individual who escaped deportation through "errors of law"
  • The Special Immigration Appeals Commission decided in November that Qatada could not be removed to Jordan without "a real risk" of evidence obtained through torture being used against him at a retrial
  • Today Lord Dyson, the Master of the Rolls, and two other judges unanimously rejected the appeal
