Immigration Bill to Reduce Number of Appeals to facilitate Deportation


Speaking on the Andrew Marr Show, Home Secretary Theresa May says an immigration bill to be put forward later this year will include a reduction in the number of appeals people can make against deportation decisions.

This stems  from the long period of time it took to deport Abu Qatada from UK to Jordan to face charges of terrorism. Qatada and his lawyers exploited various – almost non-ending appeal loopholes in both UK and EU laws to delay his deportation.

Abu Qatada has now arrived in Jordan, and Jordanian officials said that legal proceedings have already commenced to bring him to justice.
