Justice John Mitting does it again and gain and again November 2012 . and again (HOME)
More Judge Mitting
Recent decisions made by the hapless buffoon John Mitting, reinforce the wide spread belief that his Liberal/left political leanings cloud his faltering mental faculties and judgment. He could be suffering from Alzheimer's as his cognitive and decision making abilities appear to fly in the face of Justice, Logic, common sence and the impartiality high court judges are expect to display.
Judge John Mitting
This tragic & dangerous maniac 61 year old John Mitting contradicts himself in his summing up, and highlights his lack of understanding of the Human Rights act, that clearly states that the safety and security of a countries citizens takes precedence over an individuals human rights.
Qatada is a convicted terrorist in Jordan, he is not a UK citizen, he is in the UK illegally as he arrived on a false passport, he has known links to Al-Qaida. Qatada preaches extremism and was linked to at least one 911 mass murderer.
What else does Mitting's want? Of course Mittings like all the liberal judges will stick slavishly to artical 3 and this case (Chahal v UK 1996). Some one should tell Mittings times have changed since 1996 - 911/7/7Madrid Bali ? ?i. Then again, I doubt he is that sure what year it is(firstname.lastname@example.org. )
Radical Muslim preacher Abu Qatada granted bail in Britain
Radical Muslim preacher Abu Qatada accused of having close ties to al-Qaida was granted bail by a British immigration appeals commission Thursday.
Abu Qatada, who was jailed in 2002 over accusations that he played a key role in raising money for extremist groups and provided spiritual advice to militants planning terror attacks, will remain in custody until arrangements for his release are completed.
Judge John Mitting ruled the cleric should be released after the Court of Appeal ordered the government in April to stop extradition proceedings, claiming he faced the threat of torture if returned to his native Jordan.
But the judge acknowledged Qatada could pose a national security threat and imposed a strict 22-hour curfew, meaning he must be inside his home for all but two hours a day. Precise details of the curfew will be decided at another hearing, probably within two weeks, officials said.
Home Secretary Jacqui Smith said she was extremely disappointed with the decision and would "take all steps necessary to protect the public."
The government has been attempting to deport Qatada to Jordan, where he was convicted in connection with two 1998 bombings. Smith said the government would continue its efforts to deport the preacher.
Qatada has been described by a Spanish judge as Osama bin Laden's "spiritual ambassador in Europe," and Britain says he has connections with al-Qaida, Egypt's Islamic Jihad and other terror groups. Officials claim he had links to shoe bomber Richard Reid and Zacarias Moussaoui, who was convicted for his role in the Sept. 11 attack.
David Davis, the opposition Conservative party spokesman on home affairs, said the case seriously undermines Britain's program to deport terror suspects.
Qatada has denied supporting terrorism and claims he would not receive a fair trial if sent to Jordan. He was jailed in Britain under anti-terrorism laws between 2002 and early 2005, then released and re-arrested in August 2005 to be held pending deportation to Jordan.

|Jordan disappointed by Justice John Mitting and the British verdict against Abu Qatada
|Amman Nov. 12 (Petra) -- The Jordanian government on Monday said it was disappointed by a verdict issued in Britain against Omar Mahmoud Othman, better known as Abu Qatada, and not to extradite him to Jordan.
Minister of Justice Ghalib Al Zoubi told Petra that the Jordanian government had provided sufficient guarantees for a fair trial of Abu Qatada if extradited to Jordan, expressing the government's readiness to look into the decision adequately and comprehensively with the British government.
He also expressed Jordan's readiness to work with the British authorities on the next steps.
Qatada out today... at £5m a year cost to taxpayers: Hate preacher WON'T be deported to face trial
- Cost of surveillance for terror preacher will be in the millions
- Qatada claims he won't get fair trial abroad but Britain wants him deported
- He was once described by a judge as Bin Laden's right-hand man in Europe
- Terror suspect was convicted of terrorism in Jordan in his absence in 1999
- Qatada's QC: 'No reasonable prospect of lawful removal in reasonable time'
- Cleric will be under a 16-hour curfew and allowed out from 8am to 4pm
The British government has been trying to deport Abu Qatada for the past seven years. Theresa May, home secretary, has suffered several setbacks as she tried to deport the cleric in the face of concerns that evidence obtained by torture could be used against him if he was sent back to Jordan to face terror charges .
“We are absolutely determined to see this man get on a plane and go back to Jordan. He does not belong here,” Mr Clegg told ITV's Daybreak on Tuesday.
“He should not be in this country; he is a dangerous person. He wanted to inflict harm on our country and this coalition government is going to do everything we can to challenge this every step of the way to make sure that he is deported to Jordan,” he said.
Keith Vaz, the Labour chair of the Home Affairs select committee, also condemned the ruling and said ministers should work with Jordan to overturn the decision.
“At the moment, it looks pretty farcical that a very dangerous man is now put on bail having gone through the court system for seven years and having cost the taxpayer £1m,” he told the BBC.
Conservative MP Peter Bone said the government should ignore the European court. “Enough is enough – put this terrorist on a plane and send him home and worry about the European court afterwards,” he told Daybreak .
“There are times we need to put the public interest in front of the European Court and this is one of them,” he said. “The highest court in this land, our Supreme Court, has said he can go back.”
