World News – USA – Osama bin Laden’s British locksmith doctor was released early from prison « because he’s fat »


. .

Osama Bin Laden’s propagandist is back on the streets of Britain after being released from a US prison early for being overweight.

Adel Abdel Bary, 60, was imprisoned for the 1998 terrorist attacks on US embassies in Kenya and Tanzania, which killed 224 people.

However, he was released early after claiming that his morbid obesity and asthma put his life at risk due to the coronavirus.

The father of six, known in Europe as Bin Laden’s spokesman, came out of a detention center in New Jersey on Tuesday and flew to London yesterday.

The Egyptian national, whose son is an ISIS fighter, has returned to live with his wife Ragaa, 59, in their £ 1 million council flat in Maida Vale in the north-west of the capital.

His arrival in the UK could not be blocked since he was granted asylum in the UK in 1997 and the authorities cannot send him to Egypt because he could face torture or death.

The terrorist’s attorney told the New York Times, « After all this time, Mr. Bary just wants to have a quiet life with his family. ‘

A security source told the Sun, “His return is still a major headache for the Home Secretary.

« She wants to clear the country of threats, but here is a notorious terrorist right on her doorstep. « . ‘

Abdel Bary fled Egypt to the UK in 1991 after being sentenced to prison in Cairo for his links with extremists.

After he was granted asylum, he became the head of a London cell belonging to the Egyptian Islamic Jihad terrorist group, which later merged with Al Qaeda.

He was arrested in the UK in 1999 for his role in the bombings of the US embassy the previous year after reporting responsibility to the media.

The terrorist spin doctor was extradited to the United States in 2012, where he made a plea deal and was sentenced to 25 years in prison.

Abdel Bary, who rented London offices for bin Laden’s propaganda, was charged with 285 offenses but admitted to a handful, including conspiracy to murder and kill US citizens abroad with explosives.

He had withdrawn 16 years because of the time he was in custody.

Earlier this year, Abdel Bary’s attorneys argued that his morbid obesity was an « extraordinary and compelling » reason to release him.

The judge agreed that due to the risk posed by Covid-19, he should be released on compassionate grounds.

Abdel Bary was held in ADX Florence Supermax Prison in Colorado before being transferred to a customs detention center in New Jersey and then to London.

He will not be placed under terrorism prevention or investigation measures as he has already served his sentence.

Sources told The Sun that he would almost certainly be receiving benefits and having security surveillance for his safety that cost taxpayers tens of thousands.

The terrorist’s 29-year-old son, Abdel-Majed Abdel Bary, was stripped of his British citizenship after fighting for ISIS in Iraq and Syria.

The rapper, who went by the name Lyricist Jinn, was arrested by Spanish police after attempting to sneak into the southern city of Almeria from North Africa.
