My blog diary of my fight against my son Richard's extradition to the US on allegations of copyright infringement for conduct which was not a crime in the UK. It transpires that extradition was sought because the US authorities were offended by Richard posting a rap video "F... tha Police" in protest at the seizure of his domain! err... Freedom of Speech?

How to Help Richard - Victim of the UK/US Extradition Treaty
You can e mail or write to your MP about Richards case, highlighting our imbalanced extradition laws and the injustice in using extradition to deal with an "alleged" crime already described as "non serious" by our own DPP
Supporters of Babar Ahmad managed in a very short space of time to get over 140,000 signatures on their UK Government e petition. This was no mean feat and yet the Parliamentary Backbench Committee has decided not to allow a Parliamentary debate of this petition in the House of Commons. And so we start all over again with a new petition to help all victims of these Rotten extradition laws. Please sign again your support is much appreciated.
