Gary McKinnon is expected to hear a verdict from the Home Office on his extradition to the United States this week, after 10 years wait. His lawyer confirmed that a ruling would finally be handed down over extraditing the UK citizen to face charges for hacking into American government networks.
Janis Sharp, the mother of the UK resident, has spent the last decade fighting the efforts to extradite McKinnon, who was alleged of breaking into US military and NASA PCs. She has repeatedly claimed that her son, Asperger’s sufferer, would be at severe risk of suicide if extradited to another country. Industry experts believe that he might face a sentence of up to sixty years for hacking. Although McKinnon’s mother contends that he should indeed stand trial for what he had done, her son should face a judgement in the United Kingdom.
This case has drawn the backing of prominent British MPs and has even led to an appeal to the Prime Minister to discuss the matter directly with Barack Obama. Indeed, this lawsuit has been lively discussed by MPs who question the existing extradition treaties between the United Kingdom and the United States. The observers claim that the current rules are one sided in favor of the United States, with the Americans being considered very unlikely to be extradited to the United Kingdom.
Successive Home Secretaries faced the issue of McKinnon’s extradition. In the meantime, the authorities of the United States have been standing their ground: the hacker should be extradited to their country, and now Conservative Theresa May has to make a final decision over whether to satisfy those demands.
Theresa May has already delivered a number of extradition rulings within the past few weeks: for example, in the high profile case of radical cleric Abu Hamza she decided the defendant should be extradited, while in another contentious case (of Abu Qatada) she for some reason decided that the defendant could be allowed to stay in the United Kingdom.
In the meantime, Theresa May is also expected to announce her decision verdict on demands from the American Justice Department to extradite the British resident Richard O’Dwyer for piracy offences. A verdict on McKinnon’s case is expected to be delivered this week.

|10 years waiting to be extradited|
we fail our own daily through extradition BS,he should have been tried and served his time by now for any crime up to and including murder within the UK.Since he is a UK citizen the matter should be tried in the UK and be released with time spent since every day for the last 10 years he has had this hovering over him and that in itself is punishment enough.

|If a UK citizen commits a crime on UK soil then they are answerable only to UK Law, if we are to start extraditing people like Richard O'Dwyer for breaking absolutely no law in the UK and whose activities, though considered illegal in the USA, were carried out perfectly legally in the UK then where does that stop?|
Since in the UK millions of people drive on the left side of the road (According to UK law) and that clearly breaks USA traffic laws can we expect to see mass extraditions of UK citizens to the USA to face traffic charges?
If we allow extraditions of people like Richard O'Dwyer and Gary McKinnon to the USA then no law abiding UK citizen is safe...

Only Americans could waste all this money on a situation they were never going win. They should be thanking him for highlighting their security flaws. The egoistical attitude of america is bloated and has an arrogance that is shameful.
Its a statistical fact that the world is a safer place "without" religions of any sort, than with and the sooner religions are removed from our lives the better the world will be.

|@klkekller whay are you removing your comments? are you a little ashamed to be "gay". And a "muslim" gay boy? and the only people who fear the gays are the one that are insecure about there own sexuality "true fact". or are you one of these muslims born here in the mighty england and think your english . it boils my wee when i hear that the cockroaches claimere to be british if you where born here.... if a dog is born in a stable its not a horse is it.|
|@klkeklller: It isn't the "atheist homos" who spend an inordinate amount of time with their foreheads to the ground and their backsides in the air, hoping to have their rectums filled with Allah's or Muhammad's "blessings". Nor is it the "atheist homos" who hate the sight of female curves. Perhaps you should frig off to Allah's glorious Land of the Camels where there are fewer "atheist homos" with their secularism to upset your day. Also, consider stepping away from the internet altogether, what with it being an invention of the dirty Western kafirs and their evil secular sciences. It's all part of their cunning plan to prevent you from becoming closer to Allah and his all-encompassing bum-cheeks.|
Oh, wait, you're all effing hypocrites, aren't you? "I hate the West - but I'll live here, surrounded by its depravity!"
But I guess that's because you don't want to live in a tent situated directly outside Mecca, isn't it?

|I agree with what one of the members said here about that if it wasn't a crime to do what he did in the UK then how can he logically get in trouble for it? Now of course even a kid would know that he would getting in trouble somehow for hacking into any governments computers.....but still, he didnt' break any laws in his own country. And besides...... their are sooooo many new laws that are added every year in the USA (where i'm from) in all the different states....I promise that no one here knows all the laws and probably break at least 1 a month without knowing it, including the law makers themselves.|
So really....if the lawmakers dont know all the laws because there are enough to actually fill up libraries (seriously), then how can they expect us citizens to know all the laws? It's an impossible task and they know it!
