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!

Days imprisoned so far: 4202


An exceptionally moving and informative film, 'Extradition', directed by Turab Shah, tells the tale of Babar Ahmed and Talha Ahsan who have been kept in prison without trial, and face extradition to the US, a country they have never set foot in.


This could be our last chance to save Babar and Talha. Act today, don’t delay before it’s too late. Every second counts.

1. Email the DPP and your MP today. If you’ve written once, write again.

2. Get every member of your family to do the same.

3. Ensure one friend per day minimum to do the same.

4. Get 10 members of your constituency to write an open letter to your MP in the local paper.

5. Arrange a delegation to visit your MP.

6. Write to every national paper which has covered the case calling fo a UK trial.
