Qatada 'Will Return To Jordan' If Law Agreed

Abu Qatada has agreed to voluntarily return to Jordan if the country's parliament ratifies a treaty with the UK guaranteeing that he will not be tortured.

His co-operation was announced by his barrister, Edward Fitzgerald QC, at the beginning of an immigration tribunal to decide whether Qatada could be released from prison.

But his application for bail was later adjourned until May 20, meaning he will remain in custody until then.
