ABSTRACT
The article presents information on Great Britain's efforts to deport Jordanian national and terrorist suspect Abu Qatada since October 2002 and its ethical implications. It discusses how the British counter-terrorism policy involves the use of Memorandums of Understanding (MoUs) which allow nations to deport terrorism suspects to countries deemed too dangerous, unstable, or are known to utilize torture. The author believes that by using MoUs Great Britain is undermining international law.
