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!

2nd December 2011

Written on the 8th Anniversary of Police Assault

I will never live in disgrace.

I will never bow down before any man.

I will never let you humiliate me.

I will never be your slave.

Even if you take my liberty,

You will never take my dignity.

I will always live free.


Cut my throat from ear to ear.

Suck my life from year to year.

Rip my skin from tear to tear.

Pound my brain from fear to fear.

My flesh may bleed, but my soul will shine.

My heart may break, but my face will smile.

I will always live free.


Whatever will be will be.

No matter what my destiny,

Even under tyranny,

Even in captivity,

I am free.

I was born free.

I will always live free...
