Anti-terror laws unravel as Clarke releases suspected extremist

PUBLISHED February 2, 2005

The Government's anti-terrorism laws unravelled further yesterday after an alleged extremist held without trial for more than three years was released unconditionally on the orders of Charles Clarke, the Home Secretary.

The Egyptian detainee, known only as C, was released from Woodhill top-security prison near Milton Keynes after Mr Clarke ruled that he no longer posed a threat to national security.
