A Muslim cleric who influenced a 7/7 bomber is set to be released from prison, it was reported.
Sheikh Abdullah el-Faisal was jailed in 2003 for racial hatred and soliciting the murder of Jews, Americans and Hindus after urging Muslims to wage jihad.
The Observer said yesterday he was now eligible for parole after serving more than half his seven-year sentence and that he had been issued with a notice of deportation to Jamaica.
There are concerns that elFaisal, who preached to hundreds of Muslims in Birmingham, London and West Yorkshire, could now resume his teachings over the internet. Labour MP Andrew Dismore asked: "Once he's deported to Jamaica, what restrictions will there be to prevent him spreading his message of hate over the internet?"
The Government's official account of 7/7 credits el-Faisal with having had a "strong" influence on Jermaine Lindsay, who blew up a tube train at King's Cross.
A Home Office spokesman declined to comment on an individual case.
Home Secretary John Reid has instructed that all bail applications, which are heard by the Asylum and Immigration Tribunal, should be opposed "as vigorously as possible".
