Abu Qatada: Cleric refused bail


Radical cleric Abu Qatada has been refused bail by an immigration tribunal in his latest bid for freedom.

His lawyer argued he should be released from prison, where he has been since March, so he could spend more time with his family before leaving the UK.

Abu Qatada would return to Jordan voluntarily if a fair trial treaty was ratified, his lawyer added.
