Britain’s Home Office releases terrorist suspect

Another Lybian:

Britain’s Home Office has released a man from a house-arrest style program only weeks before a hearing in which the government might have been forced to disclose the intelligence that led to his arrest, a newspaper reported Monday.

The Times of London said the man — a Libyan-British dual national identified only as AF — was released last week.

He had been part of the so-called “control order” program, which allows the government to tell terror suspects where they can live and when they can leave their homes.

The reported release comes after Britain’s highest court decided the orders were illegal in some cases because the suspects had not been given sufficient details of the cases against them. The paper quoted Carl Richmond, an attorney acting for AF, as saying he has had his electronic tag removed and is “trying to readjust to normal life.”
