Abstract

The European Court of Human Rights ruled yesterday that Abu Qatada, allegedly very close to Osama Bin Laden for many years, will not be returned to Jordan to face further action against him by the authorities in that country The ruling has outraged a large portion of the public and, as Conor Gearty writes, has also divided human rights activists.
