Britain Can’t Deport Libyan Al-Qaeda Suspects

Fool, Britannia:

Islamic extremist paid STG 2,000 to be smuggled from Malta to the UK

A terror suspect who was once found with a map marked with the flightpath to Birmingham International Airport has defeated the UK Government’s bid to deport him to Libya.

The man, who can only be identified by the initials DD, has been described by a court as “real and direct threat to the national security of the UK”.

A second Libyan, known only as AS and described as a “committed Islamist extremist” also won his appeal against deportation.

Note that this isn’t DD and AS’s first hearing; this is the government’s appeal after a prior loss. They were in the news a year ago for that and apparently Britain really, really, doesn’t want to send them back to Libya. Both articles–even the Guardian’s, for Pete’s sake–go on at truly jaw-dropping length explaining this guy’s familial and circumstantial ties to terrorism…for example, a violently deceased brother-in-law who was the suspected masterminded the Madrid bombing. But why can’t DD and AS be sent home?

Let’s ask the kindly souls of Amnesty International, UK:

In the cases of DD and AS, the Court of Appeal found no grounds to disagree with the decision of the Special Immigration Appeals Commission (SIAC) that the assurances which had been obtained by the UK from Libya, in the form of a ‘Memorandum of Understanding’, were not sufficient to protect DD and AS from a real risk of torture or other ill-treatment if they were to be returned to Libya. Amnesty International welcomed this recognition of the real risk to which these men would undoubtedly be exposed if they were to be returned to Libya.

Got that? The chance that this man (who bribed his way into the country illegally and engages in a ridiculous level of suspicious and outright pro-jihadist activity) might endure some unpleasantness at Khadaffi’s hands outweighs the risk that he might well unleash a bit of unpleasantness of his own upon the British populace.

Don’t worry, though. These guys won’t be set scot-free to roam the English countryside. The Maltese article notes they’ll be under a strict “control order”. Nothing keeps terrorists locked down like a control order.

There’s even a curfew.

Sleep tight.

P.S. What if we sent someone over to escort these guys to Gitmo?
