UK: Cleric Appeals To Europe’s Human Rights Court
In April, the Strasbroug, France-based court ruled that the UK could send Al-Masri – considered Britain’s most recognizable extremist – to the United States to face terrorism charges.
The Home Office on Monday confirmed Al-Masri’s appeal, saying it welcomed the original judgment but noted it will not become final until any appeal is decided.
Under standard procedure, a panel of Grand Chamber judges now must convene and decide whether to take up Al-Mari’s case.
It was not immediately clear when the panel would meet, and officials at the court could not immediately be reached for comment.
