Amend or Repeal the Extradition Treaty with the USA

1 Comment 8th July 2010

The Extradition Treaty with the USA is plainly unbalanced.  Our courts must comply with a demand from the USA with no good grounds demonstrated, whereas we must provide more substantial grounds to extradite from the USA.

Repeal the treaty so that each country must provide proof of guilt to make the extradition more than a formality.

Why does this matter?

Because the rights of British citizens have been subordinated to relations with the USA.

One Response to Amend or Repeal the Extradition Treaty with the USA

  1. Mark Rowantree says:

    The current treaty is palpably unbalanced and partial. It fails to afford equitable and reasonable protections to UK citizens whose extraditions are sought.
