£650 new taps for extremist Muslim preacher Abu Hamza

Posted: November 17, 2009 in Broken Britain

Prison officials have spent £650 on new taps and handrails for extremist Muslim preacher Abu Hamza.

IliePlumbers replaced the standard twist taps Hamza has used for years with chrome lever ones in the top-security Belmarsh jail, in south east London.

Two cells had to be fitted with the taps, because high-risk prisoners are moved every month for security reasons. Handrails were also placed by the lavatories in both cells. The work, which was all at taxpayers’ expense, took two days. He had spent 21 months on remand when he was jailed for seven years in February 2006 for preaching hate and inciting murder at Finsbury Park Mosque in north London.

But Hamza has now served his time as his sentence has been cut automatically, and he is only being held because he is due for extradition. But he is appealing to the European Court of Human Rights in an attempt to avoid being extradited to the US.

The TaxPayers’ Alliance estimates that Hamza, an Egyptian born father of eight, has so far cost Britain £2.75 million in welfare payments, council housing, NHS and prison bills, trials and legal appeals.
