    The radical cleric Abu Qatada is set to be on his way out of jail and back into the community.
    [FONT=&amp]Official sources have confirmed to Sky News that final bail conditions were approved by both sides on Monday morning and the 51-year-old Palestinian would be released from Long Lartin prison in Worcestershire once he is processed by prison authorities.[/FONT]
    [FONT=&amp]Qatada, described as al Qaeda's spiritual leader in Europe, will be subject to strict bail conditions on his release.[/FONT]

    [FONT=&amp]He will have to wear an electronic tag, be confined to his home address for 22 hours a day and he will not be able to access the internet or telephone.[/FONT]
    [FONT=&amp]In addition, the cleric - who the Home Secretary has described as posing a "real threat to the UK's national security" - will not be allowed to take his children to school.[/FONT]
    [FONT=&amp]The bail conditions are some of the toughest imposed since the 9/11 terror attacks.[/FONT]
    [FONT=&amp]The cleric has been held for six-and-a-half years, more than any other detainee in modern immigration history, while fighting deportation to Jordan, where he has been convicted of terrorism charges in his absence.[/FONT]

    [FONT=&amp]However, he is now being released on bail after human rights judges in Europe ruled he could not be deported to Jordan without assurances from the authorities there that evidence gained through torture was not and will not be used against him to secure a conviction.[/FONT]

    At least justice is being done. They put him in prison for 6 years without any evidence of wrong doing. What a sad world we are living in.
