UK: Special Immigration Appeals Commission dismisses challenge against deportation

On 24 August, the Special Immigration Appeals Commission dismissed the appeal of an Algerian terrorist suspect against his deportation to Algeria. The Commission held that he did not face a real risk of torture since Algeria had given assurances that he would not be ill-treated upon return. The UK Government’s attempts to conclude a memorandum of understanding with Algeria, containing assurances that individuals sent back to Algeria would not be ill-treated, have so far been unsuccessful.
