Why Do We Not Deport Terrorists?

It is a sad indication of the Law these days that terrorists cannot be deported. This is mostly due to the Human Rights Council and European Laws.

I read a report today that states that at least forty convicted terrorists have not been deported because the Home Office is not doing its job, not forgetting the interference from the European Human Rights Council.

When these people are caught they are put in prison for three to four years and then released back into our society. We have these people living among us and who is to say they will not commit more atrocities after they are released.

British Law has taken a nosedive from what it used to be fifty years ago and the situation is going to get far worse. If these people know they cannot be deported back to their own country the violence will never cease.

“In the court cases, lawyers – typically funded through legal aid – have successfully prevented foreign-born terror suspects from being sent back to their home countries. The scheme – in theory – allows the UK to expel terror suspects with guarantees they will not be mistreated or even tortured in their home country. But it appears to have broken down allowing terrorists to remain in the UK. The report is potentially embarrassing for the Prime Minister because it is expected to highlight the collapse of an initiative she pushed hard for while in the Home Office.”

It took Britain over ten years to deport the hate preachers Abu Qatada and Abu Hamsa, since then very few have been deported. Once the Police and MI5 have proven that they belong to a jihadist network they should be arrested and deported within weeks.

Professor Clive Walker, an international law expert said: “My research suggests there are more than 40 foreign terrorists convicted in the UK who have avoided deportation using the human rights act. The figure is much larger than was previously thought.”

Lord Carlile, Mr Anderson’s predecessor as the independent reviewer of terror legislation said, “My role in it was to compile a detailed description of the rules and regulations about deportation with assurances. I still think the Home Office wish to pursue DWA.”

Abu Qatada – Finally Deported

The DWA stands for Deportation With Assurance, which means that terrorists sent back to their own country will not be tortured or abused. This is one of the reasons it took so long to deport Abu Qatada.

It is a sad fact that there are many militants living among us and although MI5 and the Police know who many are, they cannot be arrested and deported because of British Laws and the European Laws. We must wait until someone dies.

Among those understood to have used the Human Rights Act to resist deportation include jihadists linked to the failed 21/7 bomb plot in 2005, who were jailed in the UK and subsequently released after serving their sentences. Another is an Algerian terrorist imprisoned for funding al-Qaeda training camps but since free after serving his sentence.

People Fleeing For Their Lives

There is huge pressure on the Anti-terror Police and the Security Services after the three recent terror attacks, for all perpetrators were known to the Police but they did nothing to remove them or prevent the attacks. “The attacks in recent months demonstrates the need to protect the public and that this should outweigh the human rights of terrorists,” said Lord Carlile. I have to admit that I fully agree with this statement.

Since these terror attacks have begun just twelve foreign born jihadists have been deported under DWA rules. By contrast, France has deported 120 terrorists back to their own country.

Theresa May has said recently that all known jihadists will be deported, but we will have to wait and see if this really happens.
