August 8, 1988

PORTSMOUTH, England (AP) _ A jailed Libyan on Sunday awaited deportation after authorities ruled that he posed a risk to national security, police said.

A report by the London Broadcasting Co. said Hadi Issa Grada, 44, was suspected of organizing actions against Libyan exiles opposed to Libyan leader Col. Moammar Gadhafi.

Officials in the Home Office, which is in charge of internal security and immigration, refused to comment on the specific allegations against Grada.

Home Secretary Douglas Hurd informed Grada, who has a British wife and two children, that his presence in Britain was ″not conducive to the public good for reasons of national security,″ said a Home Office spokesman, speaking on condition of anonymity.

Grada’s wife told the domestic news agency Press Association that her husband was arrested Tuesday.
