Our Crazy Extradition Laws

I actually think that to extradite Abu Qatada to Jordan to stand trial might be the wrong thing to do.  Although many in this country from Lord Carlile and the Prime Minister downwards think he should go.

But then I also think to leave him here might be the wrong thing to do as well.  If you read about him on the Internet he has annoyed a lot of powerful and/or nasty people, who have a record of making sure people they don’t like, can’t hurt them.

But then we are quite happy to send people to the United States, as we did with the NatWest Three and are soon to do with Christopher Tappin and a few others, due to Tony Blair’s one-sided extradition treaty, that he signed to curry favour with the United States.

It all doesn’t seem fair, that we have no control over our extradition process. Either the European Court stops us or we just say yes to the United States.
