Appeal over ‘Australian Taleban’

`The Home Office has lodged an appeal against a High Court ruling that an Australian man imprisoned at Guantanamo Bay has a right to British citizenship.

David Hicks, 30, was detained in Afghanistan in 2002 and has been held by the US at Camp X-Ray in Cuba. [..]

The Home Office accepted Mr Hicks was entitled to citizenship but said it can refused or withdrawn because of the charges Mr Hicks faces.

A Home Office spokesman said: “The ruling by the courts was a disappointment. The Home Office was granted permission to make an appeal and we have done so.”‘
