A radical Islamist cleric described by prosecutors as a key al Qaeda operative in Europe was freed from prison Tuesday after a court ruled he cannot be deported from Britain to Jordan to face terrorism charges.
Immature, calculating, emotional and self-centered — yes. But almost certainly not a Russian spy. That was a special immigration tribunal's ruling Tuesday on the dramatic case of a young Russian woman accused by Britain of being a Russian agent after she had a long affair with a married British lawmaker.
Mitting said there remained a real risk that evidence obtained through torture would be used against Abu Qatada, which would be a breach of his human rights.
Under the terms of his bail, Mitting said, the cleric must observe a 16-hour curfew, wear an electronic anklet, cannot use the Internet and is barred from contacting certain people.
