"Mr Abu Hamza is currently being held on suspicion of the commission, preparation or instigation of acts of terrorism.
Police said a 47-year-old man was held under the Terrorism Act on Thursday.
The offences Mr Abu Hamza is being held over are alleged to have taken place in the UK.
He was already in Belmarsh high security prison awaiting extradition to the USA, for alleged activities in Yemen - why is he not being extradited to Yemen ?
Since he has already been arrested and set free without charge under the Terrorism Act regarding his alleged activities in Yemen, and since he has, presumably been under constant surveillance (by tabloid newspapers as well as, presumably, MI5) since then, until May this year since when he has been in locked up in Belmarsh, when exactly did he have the chance to get involved in terrorist activities in the UK ?
Presumably, given his notoriety, every other terrorist suspect being held under the Terrorism Act is being repeatedly asked "have you ever been in contact with Abu Hamza or the Finsbury Park Mosque ?". Given the prejudicial statements from the Home Secretaryu and the tabloid press hysteria, how is it now possible to conduct a fair trial of Abu Hamza in the UK ?
Perhaps things will be clearer once some actual charges and evidence are brought before a British court, which will take precedence over any extradition proceedings.
