Jailed Muslim cleric to be deported from UK

August 21, 2006 00:13

Abdullah el-Faisal, a Jamaican-born convert to Islam, has been informed he will be expelled from Britain on completion of his current jail term, the Home Office said. The cleric was sentenced to nine years jail in 2003 on charges of incitement to murder and stirring racial hatred after he urged followers to kill Hindus, Jews and Americans. Prosecutors said that in study group lectures and on audio tapes, the cleric had also attempted to recruit British youths for terrorist training. El-Faisal, who had his sentence cut to seven years on appeal, is eligible to apply for parole after serving half his jail term, but has been informed he will be deported to Jamaica immediately following his release from prison.
