Muslim Cleric linked to Tunisian Beach Jihad Massacre Fights to Stay in the UK – Gets £123,000 of Legal Aid

“Hani al-Sibai was granted public money to help him fight deportation even though he is alleged to be a ‘key influencer’ of the extremist Ansar al-Sharia movement.”

British authorities fought hard, assembled a huge dossier full of smears from the hard left, and got me banned from the country. They work ruthlessly and energetically against foes of jihad terror. If they worked so hard against jihadis such as Hani al-Sibai, there would be no terror threat in Britain today.

Hani al-Sibai was granted public money to help him fight deportation even though he is alleged to be a ‘key influencer’ of the extremist Ansar al-Sharia movement.

This group is believed to have recruited Seifeddine Rezgui, the gunman who massacred 38 British and other tourists at Sousse in June 2015.

Al-Sibai, 55, whose three-storey housing association home in West London is worth £1million, is also said to have radicalised Mohammed Emwazi, the infamous Islamic State executioner best known as ‘Jihadi John’.

He described the 2005 7/7 terror attacks in London as a ‘great victory’ for Al Qaeda and hailed Osama Bin Laden as ‘a lion among the lions of Islam’.

The taxpayer-funded payments will horrify families of the British Sousse victims, who last week heard harrowing evidence of how their loved ones were gunned down in a 20-minute rampage.

Days after the Tunisia terror attack, the Daily Mail revealed connections between the atrocity and extremists in the UK.

Al-Sibai arrived in Britain in 1994 and was refused asylum in 1998 because of his involvement with the Egyptian terror group Islamic Jihad.

He was jailed while the Government tried to deport him, but had to be freed after less than a year because Egypt failed to provide assurances that he would not be in danger there.

Human rights laws make it impossible for suspects to be returned to countries where they might be tortured or killed.

Over two decades he has received £123,000 in legal aid, which paid for representation by top human-rights lawyers.

Al-Sibai also used public funds to sue the authorities for unlawful detention. In 2004, the High Court ruled that 14 days of his ten months behind bars during 1998 and 1999 were not legally justified — the Government should have let him go as soon as it knew there was no chance of deporting him.

He received compensation but the Home Office would not disclose the figure to the Mail. Al-Sibai used public funds yet again to go to the European Court of Justice and challenge his inclusion on an official list of Al Qaeda affiliates. He won his case thanks to a series of official blunders, including not being given a proper chance to defend himself….
