MPs claim to be appalled by our unjust and uneven extradition deal. But they still won’t change it
A decade ago I wrote an article for the Guardian about the fundamental unfairness of the US extradition treaty. Back then, British citizens risked being hauled before American courts over allegations of criminality in the UK. Politicians on the left and right issued condemnations. The US pressed on regardless.
Today, there are different cases, but substantially the same system with the same unaddressed problems.
