Abu Qatada Secret Address, The radical Muslim cleric Abu Qatada has, two days after his release from prison, had his request for a new home granted following protests outside his supposedly secret front door. He will leave the £400,000 property in Wembley, north-west London, where his rent is paid by the taxpayer, for a secret address.

In a statement, his barrister Edward Fitzgerald, QC, said: “The family are going to relocate and therefore Mr Qatada would accept the Home Office-approved accommodation.”

He refused to say where the cleric would be living but confirmed that the family had asked to be relocated. Qatada is wanted in relation to t*rror*sm offences in his home country, Jordan, and is often described as al-Qa’ida’s “right-hand man in Europe”.

On Tuesday, a judge ruled that he could neither be permanently imprisoned nor extradited to Jordan, because there was a risk that evidence obtained there under torture could be used against him.
