May 2 (Bloomberg) -- A panel of five judges at the European Court of Human Rights will decide on May 9 whether it will reconsider the case of Muslim cleric Abu Qatada, which the U.K. wants to deport to Jordan to face terrorism charges.

The panel has to make a decision on whether to refer his appeal to the court’s Grand Chamber, a spokesman for the Strasbourg-based body said today. Qatada appealed against a U.K. ruling that he should be sent to Jordan on the grounds it infringed his human rights.
