EU Laws Prevented Spain Deporting Barcelona Jihad Mastermind

The Spanish government tried to throw Abdelbaki Es Satty, 42, out of the country in 2014 after he served a sentence for drug smuggling.

But a judge said two EU directives gave Es Satty the right to stay in the country – because he did not pose a “serious threat”.

After the failed attempt to deport him, Es Satty went on to brainwash members of the cell who carried out two terror attacks in Barcelona and nearby Cambrils earlier this month.
