Looks like Britain’s favourite resident Jihadist, Binyam Mohamed, is on his way to becoming a millionaire!

 

Taxpayers will foot an estimated £250,000 bill for the return to Britain of an Ethiopian held at Guantanamo Bay. Security and surveillance costs covering Binyam Mohamed’s life in Britain will add an estimated £150,000 to the £100,000 paid to hire a plane for him. The 30-year-old was released from the U.S. detention camp on Monday, vowing to expose British ‘complicity’ in his alleged torture in the seven years since he was arrested in Pakistan.

Now he can look forward to massive legal compensation, with human rights lawyers making damned sure we all pay for Binyam’s pain. We treat Jihadists better than we treat our own soldiers. Sickening.

  1. Ummm… not quite David. He doesn’t get the money for the plane, or the security.
    I think the compensation paid to soldiers is appalling and a disgrace. I think some of the treatment of ex-soldiers is contemptible. I think the closure of the military hospitals was a mean-spirited penny-pinching action against a group that have given so much for their country.
    But – this isn’t a zero-sum game.
    I have no idea what this man’s legal status is and I – like everyone else – has no idea if he is a terrorist. But we have to assume that for some reason the UK has some responsibility for him until such time as we can demonstrate that we don’t. And as he has not appeared once in a court to clear his name he remains with the presumption of innocence.
    If he is a guilty man, lets put him in a court, test the evidence against him, and try him. Then if he is found guilty we deal with him in the appropriate legal manner.
    Until that time this man has had 8 years of his life stolen from him and, if his allegations are true and can be proved, has been subjected to some pretty barbaric treatment.

    As an aside, the comments on the original Daily Mail site are extraordinarily telling, as is the poll. Says everything you want to know about the kind of person who reads that newspaper.

  2. ‘Security and surveillance’ costs eh?

    Alternatively, the Home Secretary could wield her powers and boot him out. His residency waned while he was in Gitmo anyway. No need to bother the bureaucrats, just send him home to Ethiopia.

  3. I believe the concern is that were he deported to Ethiopia the regime there, such as it is, is not terribly interested in detaining him. If he is a threat to the West then sending him to Ethiopia is not in our interests as he will be released almost as soon as he gets there.
    If he is no threat, and we have no legal obligations over his residency, then deport him just as soon as is humanly (and humanely) possible and let us be rid of him for once and for all.
    But there certainly appears to be some doubt over his status here.
    I can’t imagine any government of any persuasion would want to pick up the tab for any longer than is necessary.
    All of which is a very good reason to put him in court as soon as possible. If he is a threat then reluctantly we may have to lock him up at our expense. At least that way we know where he is and he won’t be able to commit harm.

  4. >>Taxpayers will foot an estimated £250,000 bill for the return to Britain of<<

    Who believes this crap? There is no way that his return will cost anything like that amount.

    But whatever it costs, the US should foot the bill. They abducted him and should pay for returning him.

    >>If he is a threat then reluctantly we may have to lock him up at our expense<<

    Jaz, people can be locked up only for committing a crime.

  5. "Who believes this crap? There is no way that his return will cost anything like that amount."

    Are you suggesting the Daily Hitler would just make up a number? Surely not!

  6. Jaz, people can be locked up only for committing a crime.

    Sorry – wasn’t clear. What I meant was if he is found guilty of offences rather that deport him where he may well just be released, we may have to lock him up here.
    I am not suggesting for a moment that we detain him without a trial. I am no Daily Mail reader…

  7. Jaz, the guy is here illegally. He should be returned to Ethiopia.

    Well it appears to that his exact status isn’t clear, unless you have some inside track on this. That will be the purpose of the hearing.
    But there is also the question of the threat he poses. If he is a threat then one of the problems with deporting people to Ethiopia is that the Ethiopian authorities are terribly interested in locking people up, so there is a very strong possibility he will be freed leaving to return to his nefarious activities.
    Surely, under those circumstances, and were he convicted in court, it would be safer to lock him up over here where at least we would know he was not a threat?
    Obviously if he is not a threat, or if he is not convicted, and he has no right to stay, then off he jolly well goes…
