Withdraw from unfair extradition treaties

Withdraw from extradition treaties with the USA. Current arrangements are demonstrably and grossly biased in favour of the US. The treatment of the 'NatWest Three' underlines the point. UK citizens should always be fairly treated. 

Withdraw from the EU arrest warrant scheme until such time as proper arrangements have been put in place to ensure that British citizens are not at risk of being arrested abroad as a consequence of mistaken identity, and we are satisfied that there is no risk of miscarriages of justice in respect of those who may be arrested under these warrants.

Extradition treaties

Extradition treaty to USA and elsewhere – this treaty HAS to be re-thought as currently we kow tow to foreign governments     who have no idea of what true justice means – we should be ashamed that we extradite our citizens to regimes, including USA where justice is not dispensed in an acceptable manner – the previous government should have been totally ashamed of its betrayal of the people of this country

THE EXTRADITION TREATY WITH THE US of A.

The extradition treaty with the USA is possibly the most unfair, unjust and sycophantic piece of legislation that any UK government has passed in a long, long time. It needs to be abolished immediately.

We need to introduce a new extradition treaty with the USA which is fair to the British people. Which is just to the British people and Which defends the British people their liberty and their interests.

We need a new treaty with the USA which requires the US authorities to put all the evidence at their disposal in front of the British court. This will allow the accused to see the evidence and defend him or herself accordingly.  Only crimes which are a crime in the UK will be considered by the court. Nothing else.

Dont let Jack Straw or other go to the American Libyan Enquiry

America has given a date and time for Jack Straw to address questions on the above. In some media reports it states he has been `summoned` and in others `invited`.

Why is this important – Well, my main reason is that when British soldiers were killed by American Air Force Jets and the Coroner wanted the pilots to testify in his court, the USA refused to send them (and this was important for bringing closure to relatives) – and these are our allies.

Add to this the one way extradition arrangements with America and now David Cameron stating that Britain was the 'junior partner' to the USA  from 1940 in WWII; lack of acknowledgement in the USA about the part American firms have played in the oil leak (I dont recall America doing the decent thing in Bhopal)  – then one has to question why we are happy to remain subservient to Americas demands.

Extradition treaty with USA

Please either renogotiate the extradition treaty so the same rules apply to both US and UK citizens or cancel the treaty which is unfair to UK citizens. The treaty was originally intended to handle terrorists but has been misused by the US authorities.

Amend or Repeal the Extradition Treaty with the USA

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.

Let’s join Norway, Switzerland and Russia outside the EU

Repeal the 1972 European Communities Act so we can leave the EU. It's always mentioned that Norway and Switzerland are both extremely prosperous European nations outside the European Union but no one ever mentions Russia as a successful non EU nation. The Russians and their Red Army did a fantastic job – as did Britain and America – in overcoming German led European Unionism in World War 2. We might once again need help from the Americans and Russians to break the stranglehold that the German dominated EU now has on our country unless we leave the EU now.

extradition to U.S.A.

This extradition treaty with the U.S.A. is a totally inequable and iniquitous piece of legislation which appears to be solely designed for the benefit of the US, in part to carry out vendettas against British nationals who have offended the US in some way(in some cases minor offences). This appears to be particularly offensive in the case of a British national who has caused the US Defence department embarrassment. This would appear to be a one-sided arrangement and as such should be scrapped.
