Radical Muslim preacher, Abu Qatada, is back at his London home tonight after winning his latest battle against extradition to Jordan.
He was freed on bail after a special UK security court upheld his appeal that he would not get a fair trial in Jordan where he is facing terrorism charges.
The court imposed a 16-hour daily curfew as part of his bail conditions.
Britain’s Home Secretary has made clear she will not rest until Qatada is deported. However, Theresa May faces another lengthy legal battle to make good on her pledge and must now put further pressure on Jordan.
Its acting information minister says the Kingdom’s constitution and constitutional court guarantees a fair trial not based on evidence obtained by torture.
Qatada has been in and out of jail in Britain for seven years without charge since his arrest for bomb plot offences in 2002.
