Jordanian minister 'disappointed' by Qatada ruling

For seven years Abu Qatada has been fighting attempts by the British government to send him back to his home country of Jordan.

He is regarded as a serious terrorist threat. But a British immigration court has agreed with European judges that it would be a breach of his human rights to send him back, as he says that evidence obtained through torture will be used against him.

Speaking to the Today programme, Jordanian government minister Nayef al-Fayez said: "We heard the disappointment of the British government [over the ruling], we share that disappointment from our side in Jordan. But we have all respect and trust in the judiciary system in Britain."
