Suicide-risk terror suspect allowed to stay in UK

An ALGERIAN terror suspect has won the right to live in Britain, amid fears he will take his own life if he is kicked out of the country.

The North African, who is believed to have provided fake passports and made travel arrangements for terrorists, does not dispute posing a threat to national security.

But in a blow to the Home Office, the Special Immigration Appeals Commission allowed the married 43-year-old, who cannot be named for legal reasons, to remain on British soil, amid concerns his human rights will be breached as he is likely to kill himself if he is returned to Algeria.

In the same judgment, Mr Justice Mitting – who recently allowed hate preacher Abu Qatada to stay in the UK – told six other Algerian terror suspects they had to leave Britain.
