The Home Office has granted a visa to a controversial charity which described Jihadi John 'a beautiful young man' allowing foreign nationals to live and work in the UK.
CAGE, who advocate for detainees in Guantanamo Bay in Cuba can sponsor foreign nationals to live and work in the UK for up to three years.
The group caused considerable disquiet when they described ISIS murderer Jihadi John,
whose real name was Mohammed Emwazi, as a 'beautiful young man who wouldn't hurt a fly'.

Since the Tories came to power in 2010, some 900,000 people have been granted a visa
The Sunday Mirror claimed CAGE is among 30,000 companies or organisations who have successfully applied for a visa to employ non-EU nationals.
Last week, Home Secretary Amber Rudd announced briefly that British companies would be compelled to report the number of foreign nationals they employ before swiftly reversing the decision.
Since the Conservatives came to power in 2010, a total of 900,000 work visas have been issued by the Home Office for staff from outside the European Union.
Under current arrangements, citizens from any of the European Union's 27 other member states do not require visas to live and work in the UK.
According to the Sunday Mirror a troupe of male strippers and a Chinese takeaway which is no longer trading also were granted work permits.
Since the Brexit referendum, there have been contradictory indications about the future of foreign non-EU nationals in the UK.
Prime Minister Theresa May has said the residency status of some 3.6 million EU nationals living in the UK will depend on whether Britons can remain abroad.
The Government has come under attack from across the political spectrum for refusing to guarantee the status of EU migrants in the UK.
The PM has been accused of treating them like "bargaining chips" in the Brexit "divorce" deal negotiations.
Once an EU resident has been in the EU for five years he or she is entitled to permanent residency rights.
Mrs May has insisted that Brexit will see immigration controls imposed on new migrants.
