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!

British businessman Karl Watkin MBE has applied for the issuing of a summons by Westminster Magistrates Court for the prosecution of British citizens Babar Ahmad & Syed Talha Ahsan whom he accuses of supporting terrorist activity in the UK.


Ahmad and Ahsan have spent several years in prison in the UK, without charge, contesting extradition to the United States on charges relating to websites.

Mr Watkin has said that he believes the British nationals accused of crimes that allegedly took place in Britain, should be prosecuted in Britain and not abroad.


He said:


“Between them they’ve spent 14 years in British jails yet have not been charged with breaking any British law – that’s crazy. Justice delayed is justice denied. I am acting where politicians, the Metropolitan Police and the CPS have failed. "
