The European Court of Human Rights has made clear in its judgment in the case of Othman (Abu Qatada) v. UK that it is not for the Court to rule upon the propriety of seeking assurances nor for them to assess the long-term consequences of doing so. Their only task is to examine whether the assurances are sufficient to remove any real risk of ill-treatment. In doing so, the Court set out in that judgment a list of factors it will have regard to. We are therefore continuing to work with foreign partners, such as Jordan, to ensure that adequate assurances are provided.
