Repeal Extradition to USA arrangements

Comment 7th July 2010

Repeal the arrangements for extradition of British citizens to the USA. Currently the Americam authorities are not required to present evidence and justify their request to a court in this country.

Why does this matter?

This is important because

it may not be possible for an individual to adequately defend themselves in a British court  where they have some understanding of the judicial process and the scale of punishments.

the arrangement is not reciprocated. American citizens cannot be extradited to the UK in the same way. There is a basic inequality in this arrangement which undermines the freedom of all UK citizens. Non reciprocated arrangements with any ither country should not be a part of our legislation.
