“Jailed Al-Qaeda chief who ‘had links to 7/7 London bombers’ gets £800,000 in legal aid to appeal his conviction,” by Joe Middleton, Mailonline, February 10, 2019:
A convicted Al-Qaeda terrorist has received nearly £800,000 in legal aid fees to appeal his conviction: Ahmed was jailed for life with a minimum term of ten years after the Manchester Crown Court after a jury found him guilty of being a member of Al Qaeda with his associate, Manchester taxi driver Habib Ahmed………………The 43-year-old, who was arrested in Pakistan, became the first person in the UK convicted of directing a terrorist organisation.
A freedom of information request has revealed the extremist received £782,407 in legal fees, as reported by The Sun on Sunday:The fees include £589,667 for a barrister and lawyers, £121,892 for an appeal against a failed conviction in 2011, as well as £60,435 for a civil action.
MP David Davies described the payments as an ‘outrage.’
Ahmed lost an appeal against conviction in 2011 after he claimed that police and the security services had earlier allowed him to leave Britain for Pakistan while he was under surveillance, knowing that he would be mistreated.
Ahmed, who is thought to have links to the 7/7 terrorists, has a parole hearing next month……we will update
