E Mail to let the Government Know How You Feel About Babar Ahmad
Babar Ahmad is a British citizen who has been detained without trial in the UK for almost 8 years facing extradition to the US for offences allegedly committed in the UK. All the evidence against him was collected in the UK with most of it being sent to the US before the Crown Prosecution Service could decide whether to prosecute him in the UK or not, a fact only admitted by the CPS in November 2011. It is only right that Babar be tried in the UK and not extradited to the US.

Please write to the Director of Public Prosecutions, Keir Starmer, to demand that Babar Ahmad be immediately put on trial in the UK. Copies will also be sent to the Attorney General and the Home Secretary.

We encourage supporters to prepare their own letters using the above points. A sample letter is below for your convenience but a personalised letter always carries more weight.

Thank you for your support!

The Metro has this morning covered the cases of Babar Ahmad, Talha Ahsan (who are Tooting constituents), Gary McKinnon and Richard O'Dwyer - all are awaiting extradition to the United States - none have been charged in the UK.


Speaking about the cases, Sadiq Khan MP said, "As the Member of Parliament for Tooting I have been working with the families and legal representatives of my constituents, Babar Ahmad and Talha Ahsan, for several years. I have raised a number of different issues about their cases to senior members of the previous government and current government (including several Home Secretaries) and the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS). If there is evidence against them they should be tried in the UK.


“I am extremely concerned about Talha’s medical condition. He suffers from Asperger syndrome and after seeing the way that Christopher Tappin was treated I am concerned whether Talha would received the attention his condition requires.


I recently arranged for the Chair of the Home Affairs Select Committee to hear directly from Babar & Talha, and he has now written to the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) asking further questions.  The coalition Government have promised to review the extradition agreement and this should happen as soon as possible. I will continue to do everything I can to support my constituents.”
