Outrage over Omar Othman...

Or to give him his full name, Omar Mahmoud Mohammed Othman a.k.a. Abu Qatada. "I wonder if a single person outside of the legal profession agrees that this is fair" writes Ed West in the DT. He is referring to the landmark judgement by the European Court of Human Rights whereby the UK has been told that clear-as-daylight terrorist associate and financier and 'Osama bin Laden’s right hand man in Europe' Abu Qatada cannot be deported to Jordan because he would not receive a fair trial. FFS! They're not even saying he will be tortured but that evidence possibly gained by torture may be used against him! Send him back and let them put him on trial, that would be fair. From that first link:
"Qatada has no rights upon Britain anymore than I have rights upon Jordan, and by granting him such the judges are not just undermining justice but the very sovereignty on which justice and human rights are built."
