British to disclose clampdown on hate-preachers
230 people who have been barred from entering the UK because they are suspected of preaching hate will be listed and named, and refused entry permanently unless they make public statement renouncing terror, the government revealed today.
Preachers of hate who have been banned from the UK will be refused entry to the country forever unless they make a public renunciation saying they no longer preach violent extremism, the Government will announce today.
Jacqui Smith will tell MPs that foreigners could be banned from the country forever unless they can persuade the Government they are no longer preaching hate.
The moves will affect Islamic exremists and others, including neo-Nazis and animal rights activists.
A total of 230 people have been excluded from entering the country since August 2005 on suspicion that they are a threat to national security or foster and promote extremism.
