BRISBANE, Australia (AFP) – A lawyer for cleared terrorism suspect Mohamed Haneef said Thursday the Indian doctor’s chances of resuming work in Australia after a court ordered his visa restored have been hurt by legal wrangling.
* Magic, just magic! Mysteriously ‘cleared’– how? Why? By whom? Was there not enough time to compile the evidence to convict him? Check this out: Legal wrangling over the letter of the law saved his ass from the slammer, but that ‘cleared’ him? Incredible. The MSM is aiding and abetting the global jihad.

A lawyer for cleared terrorism suspect Mohamed Haneef said Thursday the Indian doctor’s chances of resuming work in Australia after a court ordered his visa restored have been hurt by legal wrangling.
Haneef wanted to return to his job on the luxurious Gold Coast but delays were putting that position in doubt and he might not have a job to go back to in the end, said lawyer Peter Russo.
Last month a court overturned a decision by Immigration Minister Kevin Andrews to revoke the visa even though terrorism-related charges against him had been dropped.
On Wednesday, Andrews launched an appeal against that decision in the Queensland state capital Brisbane, arguing that the judge had misinterpreted the relevant legislation.
* Nutroots and moonbats in the judiciary…
Andrews has vowed to take the case to the High Court, Australia’s most senior court, if necessary.
Haneef was charged with providing support to a terror organisation after failed car bomb attacks in London and Glasgow but the charges were dropped for lack of evidence and he returned to India voluntarily.
Russo said on Thursday that as time dragged on it was becoming harder and harder for the hospital where he worked to keep his position open and his return might ultimately be difficult anyway.
“That may be actually becoming problematic in the sense that: Is there a position for him still available?” Russo told national radio.
* Russo –nomen est omen- another far left shyster who pushes the limits…
“He can’t, obviously, sit around waiting for too much longer because he’s got a wife and child to support.”
Haneef is currently in the Indian city of Bangalore with family after leaving Australia at the end of July.
Russo said the fight to regain the visa would continue regardless of whether Haneef ultimately returned to work in Australia, in order to clear his name.
“The problem my client faces is that if we don’t do this, he’s always going to be a person who had a visa cancelled and that needs to be sorted out,” Russo said.
The charge related to his giving his mobile phone SIM card to his cousin Sabeel Ahmed last year. Ahmed was arrested and charged over failed car bomb attacks in Britain earlier this year.
Ahmed’s brother, Kafeel, drove a car into Glasgow airport in June in an apparent suicide attack. He later died of his injuries.
* Bleeding hearts anybody?
