Abu Hamza Extradition To US Likely

As bad buggers go this bugger is a bad bugger.

The Muslim cleric Abu Hamza al-Masri can be extradited to the US to face terrorism charges, a court has ruled.

The Egyptian-born preacher is currently serving a seven-year jail term in the UK for inciting murder and race hate.

The 49-year-old from west London is wanted by the American authorities on 11 charges.

City of Westminster Magistrates Court approved the extradition, but the decision has to be ratified by the Home Secretary, Jacqui Smith.

Senior District Judge Timothy Workman ruled that Abu Hamza, who preached at Finsbury Park Mosque in north London, had lost his legal arguments.

The judge said he would send the matter to the Secretary of State for a decision on whether the former civil engineering student should be extradited. more

As a by the by on all this. Are you aware the yanks don't have to produce a single scrap of evidence when applying to extradite someone from the UK?

"We want him, please post ASAP.!

Is Assange speaking at the UN today? I'm only just back.

Just left my feedback on my latest purchase.

I bought a couple of them, because I was lost when a recent disaster befell my old faithful.

An Englishman and his tea, and all that. (nonsense)

There is no disaster that cannot be solved by a good cup of tea.

Honestly! What would the queen say if she knew?

Elizabeth Windsor

Gez, You are right, today i tried the (Dutch) English tea and earl grey. Both (literaly) pale in comparison to PG tips, Tetley and Yorkshire Tea.

I don't know if you drink much tea, but it's always Tetleys for me.

This isn't a bad second, given the fact it is probably available internationally.

Earl Grey tastes like poison.
