Judicial review lodged over Gary McKinnon extradition
A HIGH Court judge will now review the Home Secretary’s decision not to block the extradition of an autistic man who is wanted in the US on computer hacking charges.
Solicitors acting on behalf of Asperger’s sufferer Gary McKinnon have asked for a judicial review of Alan Johnson’s decision not to prevent the extradition on medical grounds.
Mr Johnson has 14 days to respond before the case goes before a judge.
Gary’s mum, Janis Sharp, who lives in Brookmans Park has fought a seven year battle to keep her son in the UK.
Prosecutors in America allege Gary, 43, caused nearly �500,000 worth of damage to military computers in 2001 and 2002.
