LONDON ­ - Sheikh Raed Salah, the leader of the northern branch of the Islamic Movement in Israel, has won an appeal against the British government after it tried to deport him.

On Saturday, the Upper Immigration Tribunal (Immigration and Asylum Chamber) wrote to Salah informing him that the Home Secretary's decision to detain him was "entirely unnecessary" and that his appeal had succeeded "on all grounds."

The court also said that his arrest was also unconstitutional, after Home Secretary Theresa May deemed that his presence in the UK was "not conducive to the public good."

Salah, from Umm al-Fahm, has been in Britain since June, despite being banned from entering the country. He spoke at a number of anti-Israel events before being arrested on June 29.
