Britain’s treatment of Abu Qatada is being referred to the International Court of Human Rights after the radical cleric was flown out of Britain on the budget airline Ryan Air. ‘It was inhumane’ he told reporters at Jordan Airport. ‘There was no in-flight magazine, they added all sorts of charges and told me my hand luggage was too big. The food was a rip-off and they kept trying to sell me scratch cards.’
If Qatada wins his case, he may be allowed to return to the UK. But the British Government hope to deter him by offering EasyJet as an alternative.
