So why is he being released?

Abu Qatada, a radical cleric with ties to many terrorist cells and acts of terrorism is scheduled for release in Britain based on the notion that he would not get a fair treatment in his home country (Jordan).
I'm perplexed on how the court came to such a conclusion - is it because he was tried in abstentia? Or because there's a possibility he would face the death penalty or the prospects of a very long sentence in a very tiny prison cell.
