Abu Qatada Trial

December 10, 2013 by  

Abu Qatada Trial, Radical cleric Abu Qatada has pleaded not guilty to t*rror*sm charges at a court in Jordan.

The Palestinian-Jordanian was convicted in his absence of involvement in bombings in 1998 and a foiled terrorist plot in 2000 but is now being retried.

His eight-year legal battle to stay in the UK ended in July.

He told the court Jordan had broken an agreement with the UK that he would be granted a fair trial because one of the three judges was a military appointee.

“The court has betrayed the conditions on which I came here,” he said.

“I demand my rights – I don’t recognise this court.”

‘Groundbreaking treaty’
When Abu Qatada was still fighting deportation from the UK, the Jordanians assured ministers his case would only be heard by civilian judges.
