Ex-MI5 informer's anger over Abu Hamza judicial delays


An ex-MI5 informer who helped to expose the radical cleric Abu Hamza has joined the chorus of anger over delays in bringing him to justice.

On Wednesday, a High Court judge temporarily halted Abu Hamza's extradition to the US.

Reda Hassaine worked undercover in the Finsbury Park mosque when Hamza was the resident Imam and says the security services have taken too long to bring the cleric to justice.

His comments come on the day the Lord Chief Justice, Lord Judge, said legal cases which go on for years - such as that of Abu Hamza al-Masri - are a "source of real fury" to him.
