Court case: The family of Abu Qatada, pictured, have won an injunction preventing protesters from staging a demonstration within 500 metres of their London home Court case: The family of Abu Qatada, pictured, have won an injunction preventing protesters from staging demonstrations within 500 metres of their London home

The family of radical preacher Abu Qatada has won an injunction preventing protesters from demonstrating outside their home.

His wife and five children were granted an ‘anti-harassment’ order by a High Court judge in London.

Mr Justice Silber also granted them an injunction against various protest groups preventing them misusing private information about the family – such as their names and address.

The judge stressed that his decision did not prevent organisations from protesting against Qatada, provided demonstrations take place more than 500 metres from the London house where they are living.

The judge pointed out that Qatada, whose real name is Omar Othman, was not a party to the proceedings.

He emphasised that the case was not concerned with whether ‘Omar Othman should still be in this country or whether he should be in prison in this country’.

Judge Silber also said he was not concerned with whether he or his family ‘should be provided with a house financed by the United Kingdom taxpayers’.

    500 Meters! What type of protest takes place 500 meters from the people being protested?

  2. Softly Bob says:

    500 meters? 500mm would be too great a distance between Qatada’s testicles and the blade of a very sharp knife!

    @Richard…..in answer to your question,,,,,,,the kind of protest that involves a hi-power rifle…..and a patriot…

    I don’t get enough practice to ensure a hit at that range.
