An Australian court on Tuesday overturned the government's decision to cancel the work visa of an Indian doctor accused - and later cleared - of links to the failed terrorist attacks on London and Scotland in June. However, Federal Court Justice Jeffrey Spender has not reinstated the visa and has left open the potential for the government to cancel the visa again for other reasons. Spender handed down his decision in the eastern city of Brisbane, where Mohamed Haneef was arrested on July 2 and held for more than three weeks on suspicion of supporting the British plots. Police later dropped the charge for lack of evidence and Haneef was allowed to return to his native India.
