Abu Qatada arrested after ‘attempts to flee’

leave a comment »

Radical Islamic cleric Abu Qatada has been arrested after allegedly attempting to flee the country. Qatada, described as Osama bin Laden’s “right-hand man in Europe”, is under strict bail conditions following an earlier Court of Appeal decision to refuse his deportation.

After being freed from HMP Long Lartin in Worcestershire in June, he was ordered to spend at least 22 hours a day confined to his West London home, wearing an electronic tag.

However, according to The Sun newspaper, Qatada, 47, has been arrested after allegedly breaching his bail. The newspaper reported that the UK Borders Agency received a tip-off that he was planning to leave Britain.

Of course, no one never imagined this could happen… Just kidding.
