A SOFT judge who allowed an al-Qaeda terrorist to stay in Britain over fears he might kill himself faced calls to quit last night.
Mr Justice Mitting — who recently upheld hate preacher Abu Qatada’s appeal to stay here — ruled the Algerian zealot’s human rights would be breached if he was booted out.
The married man, known only as ‘G’, is believed to have provided fake passports to other terrorists.
Patricia Bingley, 78, of Clacton-on-Sea, Essex — who lost her son Kevin in the 9/11 attacks in the US — said: “This judge must resign immediately.
“We should put this terrorist on the first plane to Algeria and if we can’t, send him to America. They’ll know what to do with him.”
The Algerian, 46, claimed asylum when he was caught entering the UK in 1995 on a fake passport. He tried to hang himself in his prison cell in September 2005.
Mr Justice Mitting said: “We are persuaded the risk G would commit suicide, especially after arrival in Algiers, is high.”
But he told six other Algerian terror suspects they must leave the country.
They include two fundamentalists linked to al-Qaeda terrorist Kamel Bourgass who stabbed hero cop DC Stephen Oake, 40, to death after breaking free during a terror raid in Crumpsall, Manchester, in 2003.
Bourgass, later jailed for life, masterminded the London ricin plot.
