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!

Scores of politicians, lawyers, journalists and activists joined the families of Babar Ahmad, Talha Ahsan, Gary McKinnon and Richard O’Dwyer at an emergency meeting at the House of Commons on Wednesday 20 June 2012 to discuss their impending extradition.


There was cross-parliamentary support for the extraditions to be halted in favour of domestic prosecutions with contributions from the Shadow Justice Secretary Sadiq Khan MP (Labour), John McDonnell MP (Labour) Zac Goldsmith MP (Conservative), Caroline Lucas MP (Green ) and John Hemming MP (Lib-Dem), who hosted the meeting.  Other contributions came from Isabella Swankey (Liberty), Gareth Peirce (solicitor for Babar and Talha), David Bermingham (NatWest 3), Lord Maginnis, Sir Iqbal Sacranie, Ashfaq Ahmad (father of Babar Ahmad) and journalist Victoria Brittain.


It was unanimously agreed that it was not in the interests of justice for any of the four men to be extradited to the US and that they should be tried in the UK.
