London, May 9 (ANI): With his children settled in Britain, an al Qaeda terror suspect has won the right to stay on in the country because of a case against him that dragged on for too long.

According to News of The World, a judge ruled that the unnamed Algerian jihadist - who trained at the same terrorist camp as shoe bombers Richard Reid and Saajid Badat - can simply keep on appealing against his deportation even though the Home Office has been trying to kick him out for five years.

Suspect T - who arrived here on a false passport and has also admitted lying to the security services and committing fraud - has claimed it's not safe for him to go back to Algeria.

Trained in Afghanistan to handle Kalashnikovs and explosives, the dad-of-four tried to get into France and Germany in 1993 and 1997, but those countries kicked him out.

The UK has proved to be his savior.

Mr. Justice Mitting insisted that European Human Rights laws, and guidance titled Every Child Matters means a "fine balance must be struck" between the potential risk to the UK population and the interests of T's family. (ANI)
