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.
