UK can't deport men to Pakistan over torture risk

Al Qaida = Bad guys !
Bad guys "Do" Bad things !
So what is the problem with bad things happening to Bad guys ?

LONDON: Two men regarded as a serious danger to national security can't be deported to their native Pakistan because they face the risk of torture in their homeland, a British court ruled Tuesday.

The Special Immigration Appeals Commission said Abid Naseer, 24, and Ahmed Faraz Khan, 26, can't be forcibly removed to Pakistan, because of the likelihood they would be mistreated.

Judge John Mitting and two colleagues made the ruling despite labeling Naseer an al-Qaeda operative and Khan an Islamist extremist.

''There is a long and well-documented history of disappearances, illegal detention and of the torture and ill-treatment of those detained, usually to produce information, a confession or compliance,'' the judges said in a ruling issued Tuesday.
