Last updated at 9:46 AM on 8th February 2012Abu Hamza and five other dangerous terror suspects could follow Abu Qatada in being freed to walk Britain’s streets.

Unelected Euro judges are preparing to rule if the six – who are accused of running terror camps and extremist websites or plotting atrocities – can be extradited to the U.S.

And, in the wake of Europe’s ruling that fanatic Qatada cannot be kicked out of Britain, Whitehall officials are braced for defeat.

Hate preacher Hamza is claiming that his potential jail term in America could constitute a breach of his human rights because it is potentially ‘inhuman’ or ‘degrading’.

Once there is a Euro court ruling that any of the six cannot be extradited, British judges are expected to follow the precedent set by the Qatada case and free them on bail.

In a worst-case scenario, it could mean Hamza and his fellow fanatics being released in the run-up to the London Olympics – the biggest security challenge this country has faced in peacetime. Experts have already warned there are up to 200 would-be suicide bombers in the UK, including ‘lone wolves’ seeking religious justification from the likes of Hamza or Qatada to carry out atrocities.

The Strasbourg judges are considering whether jail terms of up to 50 years in the U.S. without parole – the sentences faced by Hamza and the others – would breach Article 3 of the European Convention on Human Rights, which bans ‘inhuman or degrading treatment’.

For all the defendants, except Hamza, they also agreed to examine whether their potential detention in ‘supermax’ high security prisons was a breach of human rights.

  1. OT, but UK related . . .a second suspect has been arrested in the case of violent Asian gang assault against Daniel Stringer Prince. I won’t post the story, but here’s the link as it provides no additional detail other than a 17 year old teen aged male was arrested. M.E.N.’s ‘journalism’ continues to disgust with the way Danny Prince’s identity and location as well as family relations are identified, yet the identities of 7 or 8 Asian thugs and the 3 girls that were involved in attempted murder remain veiled behind a curtain of protection.

    LUCKY ESCAPE: Alexander Foreman with his damaged bike

    A road rage-driver deliberately ploughed into a cyclist, throwing him over his bonnet and leaving him lying on the road.

    Alexander Foreman was cycling on Egerton Road in Fallowfield, Manchester, when he was clipped by a car’s wing mirror.

    The driver then became enraged and deliberately ploughed into Alexander when he was waiting at traffic lights at the junction with Wilmslow Road.

    Police are now trying to trace the driver of the car, a gold Toyota Yaris.

    Alexander, who is studying anatomy at Manchester University, was left with minor injuries but was shaken by the incident.

    He said: “I was cycling along when a car clipped me with his wing mirror. I heard him swear loudly, even with his windows wound up, and he became really angry.

    “I just wanted to get away so I cycled on. At the traffic lights, he mounted the kerb and the next thing I knew I was on his bonnet. It was all over really quickly.”

    Alexander, 21 and who lives in Fallowfield, was on his way to Sale Water Park when the incident happened.

    He was left with minor injuries, bruises and small cuts.

    He said: “People don’t realise how vulnerable cyclists are when they are on the road. If you are in a car, you weigh about a tonne. If you’re on a bike, you weigh about 100kg.

    “Motorists need to be aware of the damage that can be done.”

    The driver is described as being an Asian man with stubble.

    Detective Constable Richard Lees said: “This man did not even bother to check on the person he had driven into. His impatience meant he had little regard for other road users and we therefore need to catch him as soon as possible.

    “We are appealing to any of the motorists who witnessed the incident, particularly those who may have made a note of the registration number to come forward.”

    Anyone with any information is asked to call police on 0161 856 6090 or call the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
