The hypocrisy of the US-UK extradition act
« on: August 16, 2012, 05:26:42 PM »
The Extradition Act 2003, signed by former British Prime Minister Tony Blair and President George W Bush, was designed and pushed through Parliament after 9/11. Blair, blinkered, and in the throes of his ?special relationship?, did whatever he could to prove that he was the man to help Bush in his ?War on Terror?. Doing whatever he could though, has resulted in a chilling situation, where Britons who could not be any further removed from terror suspects, are stripped of all their human and legal rights and shipped across the Atlantic.

This biased, one sided treaty is grossly unjust. If a crime is suspected to have being carried out by a UK citizen on the UK soil, why is the British government (who just in case have forgotten that their first and fundamental duty is to protect its citizens) allowing them to be tried in the US where they don?t live, where the alleged crime didn?t take place, where there are complications and difficulties in summoning witnesses to give evidence and where they are not entitled to the legal aid that they will desperately need?
