Detention of Dr Haneef has unravelled: Greens

20th Jul 07

Continued detention of Dr Haneef has become untenable with revelations that the case against him is falling apart, Australian Greens Attorney General spokesperson Senator Kerry Nettle said today.

“The case against him appears to be unravelling at the seams,” Senator Nettle said.

“British police have revealed that the SIM card alleged to be owned by Dr Haneef was found hundreds of kilometres away from the UK terrorist attacks.

“Minister Andrews should review his decision to cancel Dr Haneef’s visa particularly as it appears that the information he has used to do so is flagrantly incorrect.

“Dr Haneef has maintained all along that he did not reside with any terrorism suspects.

“At best this is a stuff up.

“Minister Andrews claimed he has cancelled Dr Haneef’s visa and liberty on police advice that he posed a threat to Australians. It’s now clear that the case against him does not appear to be objective or accurate.

"Minister Andrews must fix his mistake and return Dr Haneef’s visa.” Senator Nettle said.
