Cameron wants faster action on terror suspects like Abu Hamza

Britain's Prime Minister David Cameron speaks at the Conservative Party Spring Forum in central London on April 5, 2014British Prime Minister David Cameron pledged Tuesday to speed up the deportation of terror suspects after hardline Islamist cleric Abu Hamza was convicted in the United States. I think we should reflect on whether we can extradite faster,” Cameron told BBC radio. Hamza had previously been an imam at a mosque in north London known for his inflammatory rhetoric and backing for hardline Islamist groups. “We also need to look… at the European Convention on Human Rights, and the position that we’ve got to get into where, if someone threatens our country, we should be able to deport them if they have no right to be here and that is absolutely essential that we restore that.”
