Bakri 'will not be allowed into UK'

Hampshire Chronicle: Omar Bakri Mohammad will not be allowed to return to Britain, the Home Office said Omar Bakri Mohammad will not be allowed to return to Britain, the Home Office said

Extremist preacher Omar Bakri Mohammad will not be allowed back into Britain, the Government has insisted amid reports he intends to claim asylum in the UK.

The radical Islamic cleric faces the death sentence for running a terror cell in Lebanon and claims he has been tortured, according to reports.

Family members have said they are launching an urgent appeal to allow him back into Britain under asylum laws but the Home Office has ruled out a return.

Bakri, who holds Syrian and Lebanese citizenship, lived in Britain for 20 years and led radical group Al Muhajiroun until it was disbanded.

He faced possible treason charges over his support for the London bombers in 2005 and fled Britain for Lebanon. T he British Government barred him from returning.

The cleric has been repeatedly linked with al Qaida but has denied the claims.

Earlier this year he went on the run after raids in Tripoli to end sectarian violence after clashes that left dozens dead.

A Home Office spokesman said: " An individual must be physically present in the UK in order to make a claim for asylum.

"Omar Bakri Muhammad was permanently excluded from the UK in 2005 on the grounds that his presence is not conducive to the public good.

"As Omar Bakri Muhammad is excluded from the UK, he will be unable to make a claim for asylum."

You only have a short time to get your comments on before they are taken off so act quick.
We do not want this gentelman in our country. He is not allowed into this country.
I think all his family should go to another E/U country (under the free movment of peoples act) or somewhere else and do there pleading from there.
This man and his family is one of the reasons we will be taking up arms in this country!

DER. You really do need to learn to read! He faces possible treason charges here. He fled from the UK. He is excluded from the UK. If he is excluded, then he cannot physically apply for asylum. No wonder YOUR comments get excluded! End of problem. Next subject.
