Tagged terror suspect sent back to jail

PUBLISHED April 29, 2005

The government's use of control orders faced renewed criticism yesterday over what is believed to be the first jailing of a terrorist suspect for allegedly breaching his restrictive regime.

Mahmoud Suliman Ahmed Abu Rideh, 33, who was one of 10 suspects released under the controversial orders last month, is now understood to be under 24-hour watch in the hospital wing of Brixton prison, south London.
He was charged with failing to comply with "any of the obligations" imposed on him under the Prevention of Terrorism Act 2005 "without reasonable excuse".
