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 Joint Committee on Human Rights (JCHR) today publishes its report on the Human Rights implications of UK extradition policy.

They say a week is a long time in politics.  How about almost eight years, and counting, in the criminal “justice” system, with no end in sight. For Babar Ahmad, last Friday (3 June) saw the end of the trial of four police officers accused of assaulting him.

Babar Ahmad knew he risked losing his entire compensation from the Metropolitan police. If only the IPCC could emulate his bravery

Extradition Review Submitted by the IHRC to the UK Home Office on the 30th December 2010.

The European Court of Human Rights asked for submissions on the protections US law provides against inhuman and degrading prison conditions; the ACLU, along with the National Litigation Project at Yale Law School and two UK human rights organizations, sought and obtained the Court’s permission to submit these comments.
