Farage demands May Take Action On Deporting ‘Hate Cleric’
Cleric using legal aid to fight extradition to Spain.
Nigel Farage has slammed Theresa May for her inaction on hate preachers after it emerged that a Birmingham cleric is using human rights laws and legal aid to fight extradition to Spain.
Tarik Chadlioui, who is described as the ‘spiritual leader of a jihadist network’ which inspired the Bataclan attack, was arrested yesterday at the request of the Spanish authorities.
The hate preacher was allowed into Britain two years ago under EU freedom of movement laws, as he is the holder of a Belgian passport.
Spanish investigators believe he has been flying in and out of Britain for secret meetings with jihadis he has recruited through the hateful sermons he has posted on his social media accounts.
He appeared at Westminster Magistrates court yesterday to face extradition proceedings, listening through an Arabic interpreter, as he doesn’t speak a word of English.
His legal aid funded lawyers launched an appeal against his extradition under the ‘right to a private life’ article of the Human Rights Act.
Farage tweeted: “We are seeing this too often. What are you going to do about it Theresa May?”

Theresa May was a weak Home Secretary and an even weaker Prime Minister. The fact scumbags like this are able to come here and live unhindered on the taxpayer’s dime speaks volumes about how far we’ve allowed ourselves to fall.
It’s a kick in the face to those whose public services have been cut that we’re paying the legal bills to allow people like him to stay in the country.
