RETURN TO GARY MCKINNON SUPPORTERS PAGE
In The Words of The Prime Minister David Cameron
"I am deeply saddened and worried about the case of Gary McKinnon. I am saddened because he is clearly a vulnerable young man with a recognised medical condition.
"I simply see no compassion in sending him away to serve a lengthy prison sentence, thousands of miles away from his home, his family and his friends.
'If he has questions to answer, there is a clear argument to be made that he should answer them in a British court.'
"The Extradition Act was put in place to ensure terrorists didn't escape justice. It was never intended to deal with a case like Gary's."
Daily Mail p20, 14 July 2009
"It should still mean something to be a British citizen - with the full protection of the British Parliament, rather than a British Government trying to send you off to a foreign court"
This case raises serious questions about the workings of the Extradition Act, which should be reviewed."
