Judges said taking his passport away was unlawful because it left him stateless in effect without a home country. Al-Jedda, whose case is legally aided, has already won more than 50,000 in compensation and legal costs from the European Court of Human Rights over his three-year detention in Iraq by coalition forces. The court found his internment amounted to a breach of his right to liberty. Now ministers face the prospect of having to issue a new passport and allow the father of eight and his family back in. Eight really is enough. But how did he get to 8? Old Hilal is the marrying kind. Al-Jedda, 56, came to the UK in 1992 with his first wife and sought asylum. In 1998 they and their four children were given the right to remain here indefinitely and in 2000 were given British nationality. After divorcing his first wife he married again in 2002 and while still married took a third wife. He lives in Turkey with his third wife and all eight of his children. A lot of accounts mention that he was released without charge after months of detention.

In previous legal rulings judges have stopped short of saying Libor is relevant to all claims against banks but said it could be used in cases where contracts have been linked specifically to the benchmark. Barclays is being sued for up to 70 million pounds ($112 million) by Guardian Care Homes, a UK residential care home operator, which alleges the bank mis-sold it interest rate hedging products that were based upon Libor. The case has been delayed until April 2014 so the appeal decision can be heard. It started out as a complaint about the alleged mis-selling of interest rate swaps but a judge ruled last October that it could be amended to include claims of fraudulent misrepresentation connected to Libor manipulation. Barclays said the case has no merit because Guardian Care Homes had sufficient understanding of the products to make its own judgment over whether to enter into the agreements. “The addition of a claim based on what happened with Libor does not change the bank’s view. This business had a suite of advisors and a lot of financial experience and skill in-house,” it said on Friday. Barclays last year paid a $450 million to settle allegations it manipulated Libor, and UBS and Royal Bank of Scotland have been fined for manipulating Libor. Deutsche is among several other banks under investigation. Deutsche Bank last year sued Indian property firm Unitech for the repayment of a $150 million loan made in 2007 by a consortium of lenders and for the repayment of $11 million owed for a related interest-rate swap. But Unitech counter-sued, saying the loan and swap deal were linked to Libor interest rates, which at the time were being manipulated by some banks. A UK court last month said Unitech must repay the loan, but said the dispute over the related swap should go to trial. The judge said just because there was evidence the Libor rate had been manipulated did not make a loan void.
UK court to hear evidence ahead of landmark Libor ruling
We had a lot of quarterback run game in the game plan. We were going to use the quarterback run game as a decoy. Smith finished the game with 76 yards and a touchdown on 7-of-16 passing. Whitlow finished 0-for-2, but did run three times for nine yards. Senior quarterback AJ McCarron led the Alabama offense. McCarron completed 21-of-35 passes for 359 yards (a career high) and a touchdown. Alabama sophomore running backs T.J. Yeldon and Kenyan Drake both fumbled inside the UK 20 yard line in the first quarter. UK could not capitalize. For Alabama, it was all downhill from there. Yeldon finished with 124 yards and two scores on 16 carries, while Drake ran 14 times and finished with 106 yards and two scores. Alabama head coach Nick Saban credited the offensive line for the performance. We had two backs over 100 yards, Saban said. I think that says a lot about the offensive line and the job they did, but I thought both guys ran well. Alabamas first scoring drive ended with 13:08 remaining in the second quarter.
