British terror suspect gets booted to U.S.
A BRITISH terror suspect wanted in the U.S. for allegedly conspiring with hook-handed extremist Abu Hamza has been extradited from the UK.
Haroon Rashid Aswat, from Dewsbury, West Yorks, is accused of working with Hamza in 1999 to set up a Jihadist training camp in Oregon.
Earlier this year, the Home Secretary was told to put extradition planson hold after judges heard that Aswat, 40, suffers paranoid schizophrenia.
But last month two High Court judges said they were satisfied with assurances given by American officials that he would be cared for.
Hamza was found guilty of terrorism charges in May after a trial in New York. punishment for shooting dead the 29-year-old model on Valentine’s Day last year.
Pistorius, 27, was also given a suspended three-year sentence for a firearms offence.
After he was led to prison a member of Pistorius’s legal team claimed he is likely to serve just 10 months in jail before being held under house arrest.
The victim’s father, Barry, said: “We are satisfied.”
