Dear Home Office,

There is a report on

which says:-

'After a three-hour hearing yesterday in London, Sheikh Raed Salah was denied bail by the courts and is to remain in a high security prison with dangerous criminals until his appeal against deportation is heard.

'The judge stated that the prosecution's submissions that Sheikh Raed would abscond if granted bail were not convincing, and neither did they find the evidence against him persuasive. They did not allow the bail on the grounds that the Home Secretary must have compelling evidence for taking the steps that she did, and the court was not prepared to contravene this.'

My request is that Ms May publishes the 'compelling evidence'

Thank you for your help

Yours faithfully,

Richard Tebboth +44 (0) 7816 853259
