The current extradition treaty, introduced in dubious circumstances by the previous administration, breaches civil liberties, UK sovereignty and human rights laws.
The Blair created Extradition Treaty with the US, which was agreed and rubber stamped without the executives approval, needs to be repealed. It needs to be repealed because the law does not allow for the proper presentation of evidence by the United States government in a case in which an individual is being sought after for extradition by the US government. The US government has been given the right to extradite a UK citizen without having to present a case to a sovereign British court. This is an infringement of our sovereignty and such a treaty is a breach of human rights and contrary to European as well as British law. The legitimacy of this law is in doubt.
