The cost of Abu Qatada
« on: June 23, 2012, 10:44:46 am »
Around £21million has been paid in taxpayer-funded legal aid to Abu Qatada's lawyers defending his human rights during the last 10 years.
Enough to pay 105 nurses £20,000 a year over the same 10-year period.
Utter madness!

During the eight years it has taken (so far!) to get rid of Abu Qatada, it has cost £1.7 million in legal fees.
The time he has spent in prison has cost hundreds of thousands and when he is not in jail or court, monitoring him costs £100,000 a week.

To add insult to injury, he also costs tax-payers £25,000 a year in benefits too!
