CST statement: Salah judgement

10 Apr 2012 by CST

Yesterday, CST Blog carried CST's initial response to the 5th April 2012 decision by the Upper Tribunal to overturn the Home Secretary's decision to deport Sheikh Ra'ed Salah.

Now, having read the Tribunal's judgement, CST adds this, in addition to yesterday's blog posting: 

CST was contacted by the Home Office to provide information relevant to Sheikh Ra’ed Salah’s deportation on the grounds of his presence not being conducive to the public good. CST provided information, in good faith, exactly as our community would expect us to. CST stands by its actions and notes, in particular, that the Tribunal (in paragraph 53) recognised that Sheikh Salah’s intemperate expression could offend and distress the Jewish community.  CST trusts that the Home Office will appeal this decision, which threatens to significantly undermine the Government’s Prevent anti-extremism policy.

Some of Salah's defenders are attempting, for whatever reason, to move CST to the forefront of this story. The full judgement is 91 paragraphs long. CST features in three of them.
