Consideration of McKinnon medical evidence welcome – Swinson

Commenting on the Home Secretary’s agreement to an adjournment in order to consider medical evidence relating to Gary McKinnon, Jo Swinson MP said:

“It is welcome that the medical condition of Gary McKinnon is at last being taken into account.

“Labour’s determination to press ahead with extradition without fully considering Gary McKinnon’s vulnerable state was shameful.

“Hopefully we will now see him tried in a British court, rather than being subjected to the ordeal of extradition and the threat of a maximum-security US prison.”
