Mudassar Arani, a solicitor in a firm of lawyers who have received over 1 million pounds from the British taxpayer in legal aid fees, claims that convicted terrorists in Britain should be given the same rights as Prisoners of War. The firm, which represented Dhiren Barot, an Al Qaeda "mastermind", Muktar Ibrahim, who led the 21 July failed plots and Abu Hamza (well known "cleric of hate") says that these prisoners undergo searches and questions when meeting with other such people whilst in prison. She reckons that being in prison is bad enough without being held in segregation and undergoing rigorous checks. She then goes on to say they should be treated like former IRA prisoners who "negotiated" searches with prison warders. Anyone else get the feeling we're being taken for a ride?
