Radical cleric Abu Qatada 'would return to Jordan'


Radical cleric Abu Qatada would return to Jordan voluntarily if the country ratified a treaty drawn up with the UK government, the Special Immigration Appeals Commission (Siac) has heard.

The treaty deals with the use of evidence obtained by torture.

Abu Qatada's lawyer, Edward Fitzgerald QC, told the court of the decision during the cleric's bail hearing.
