Will Abu Qatada remain in the UK?

Will Abu Qatada remain in the UK?

Radical Muslim cleric Abu Qatada who used to be considered Osama bin Laden’s ‘right hand’ in Europe has received 515,000 pounds ($825,000) financial aid from the British Ministry of Finance for legal expenses in the trial for the right to remain in the UK.

Jordan demands his extradition because he has been sentenced to life imprisonment there for organizing several terrorist acts.

51-year-old Abu Qatada arrived in the UK in 1993 with a fake passport. After his arrest without any charges in 2002, Qatada spent about 7 years in a British prison.
