House of Lords Judgment against Gary McKinnon now online

The House of Lords Judgment dismissed Gary McKinnon's appeal against extradition to the USA, is now available online:

McKinnon (Appellant) v Government of the United States of America (Respondents) and another

The lead Opinion, which the other four Law Lords agreed with, was written by Lord Brown of Eaton-under-Heywood, who served until last year April 2006, as the Intelligence Services Commissioner, so he is steeped in the Whitehall culture of "partnership" with the US Military and intelligence agencies.

Gary's solicitors have applied to the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) in Strasbourg for interim relief. This could be decided on within ten days or twenty days.

One point of law being put to the ECHR is the same as Babar Ahmad i.e. the risk of being subjected to Guantanamo Bay style military or special category justice, and the other point is the threats that were made against Gary.
