Yet another reason why to leave off ”Great” in front of Britain.
To be fair, the same buffoonish nonsense can be found across Europe and the Atlantic.
Terror suspect traumatised by his ankle tag ‘raised tens of thousands for killer fanatics’
- Judge ruled wearing ankle tag was making the terror suspect ‘delusional’
- Security services will no longer automatically know when fanatic is home
- The imam supports Islamist terror group Al Shabaab, court papers reveal
- Financial records show he sent $20,390 to people in Middle East and Africa
A terror suspect who won a legal bid to take off his tag is accused of fundraising for an Islamist group that slaughtered Britons.
The row over the human rights ruling deepened last night as more details emerged of his extremist background.
Officials fear it will now be harder for police and MI5 to monitor the hate preacher, who has breached his T-Pim control order at least 11 times.
The Daily Mail revealed on Saturday how the High Court had ruled that the tag – a condition of his T-Pim – was making him delusional because he believed MI5 had put a bomb inside it.
A judge said this was a breach of Article 3 of Labour’s Human Rights Act, prohibiting torture, and that the tag must be cut off.
It means the security services will no longer automatically know when the fanatic is home.
Court papers reveal that even while wearing the tag the imam, who supports terror group Al Shabaab and is suspected of promoting jihad online, breached his T-Pim more than ten times.
The offences included using the internet, meeting banned associates and failing to stay in contact with the authorities. He was also caught with mobile phones at his home and £4,680 in cash.
