British Muslim’s control order quashed

    A control order restricting the movements of a British convert to Islam has been quashed. MI5 alleged the order was still necessary because there was a “reasonable suspicion” that Cerie Bullivant, 25, planned to travel to Iraq or Afghanistan to engage in terrorist activity.But at London’s High Court, Mr Justice Collins quashed the order after ruling: “There is no reasonable suspicion that establishes that.” Lawyers for Bullivant, from Dagenham, Essex, had argued the accusations were “baseless”, and that he was the victim of an abuse of power. Bullivant said the order had taken him down to “the depths of despair”.
