Babar Ahmad decision deferred

Babar Ahmad, a British Citizen from Tooting has been detained awaiting extradition to the US, which flouts human rights. The last Home Secretary, David Blunkett agreed a treaty where the US does not have to present evidence, which is tested in a British court. If extradited, Babar Ahmad could be tried by a military court and could face the death penalty. The lawyer for the US government said that unprecedented nature of the case meant he needed more time to consult on the issues. Judge Timothy Workman ordered a remand and review hearing on March 24, with the full extradition case to continue on April 18.
