Suspected Terrorists on bail

Asked about bail being granted to 4 terror suspects awaiting deportation, the PMOS said that Hazel Blears had released a statement which whilst expressing disappointment stressed two things. First, that this in no way prejudged the outcome of the decision on deportation. Second, that we would also be asking Special Immigration Appeals Commission (SIAC) to impose strict bail conditions. Asked if this played into the Prime Minister’s stated frustrations with the system, the PMOS said that the important thing was that we treated this case as a stand-alone case. The Prime Minister’s view that we now had different circumstances to contend with was on the record. A point that was underlined by the Home Secretary at Cabinet this morning.
