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 Final Mile

By Babar Ahmad (2011)


O one bound in fetters of steel,

Trust me, I know how you feel.


When that door slams shut at night,

The reality begins to bite.


You alone with your thoughts.

Hopes and fears of all sorts.


What will arrive tomorrow?

Some good news or just more sorrow?


Know, my friend, that every ocean has a shore.

And every hardship has a door.


Every desert has springs.

And every caged bird has wings.


So hold your head high and smile.

For perhaps you are on the final mile.
