LONDON - ­ The Court of Appeal of England and Wales refused on Wednesday the British Home Secretary's authorization to appeal the release of Raed Salah, the leader of the northern branch of the Islamic Movement in Israel.

The second most senior court in the English legal system threw out an attempt by the Home Office to revoke Salah's bail.

On July 15, the High Court in London granted Salah bail, on a surety of $49,000, while he awaits a deportation hearing. A successful appeal by the Home Office would have placed the former Umm el-Fahm mayor back in prison.

He now is set to remain in the country until his deportation hearing, which is likely to be sometime in September.
