Gary McKinnon: Nick Clegg raises doubts over powers to halt hacker’s extradition

Gary McKinnon: Nick Clegg raises doubts over powers to halt hacker’s extradition
Quote:The Deputy Prime Minister said during a radio interview that he, the Home Secretary Theresa May nor even David Cameron might not have the power to halt an earlier court decision allowing him to be extradited.

His remarks appear to contrast with comments while in opposition that it was “completely within” the then Home Secretary Alan Johnson’s power to make changes to the law to allow him to be tried in Britain.

Mr McKinnon, 44, is accused of breaking into military computer networks from his bedroom in north London eight and a half years ago.

What was described as the "biggest military computer hack of all time'' disrupted important US defence IT systems in the days after the September 11 terrorist attacks of 2001.

He admitted that he broke into the systems but insisted that he was merely looking for evidence of UFOs and believes he should be allowed to stand trial in Britain.

Although the extradition has been approved by the courts, lawyers for Mr McKinnon, who suffers from Asperger's syndrome, a form of autism, have waged a long-standing legal campaign against it insisting that the move would breach his human rights.

They have produced expert medical opinions that sending him to the US was highly likely to lead to him committing suicide because of his vulnerable mental state.

Mr Clegg has been a high profile supporter of their efforts and dismissed claims by the previous government that it had no power to intervene.

In an article last year he wrote: “It's simply not good enough for Alan Johnson to shrug his shoulders and claim that nothing can be done.

“It's completely within his power to enact amendments from the Police and Justice Act, which would allow Gary McKinnon to be tried over here.

“Or he could urge the Director of Public Prosecutions to begin proceedings.”

Asked about the matter in an interview on BBC Radio 5 Live yesterday he said that he had not changed his view “in any way”.

But he added: “What I haven't got the power to do, neither has the home secretary, neither even has the Prime Minister, is to completely reverse and undo certain legal aspects of this.

“But that, of course, you wouldn't want politicians to do.

“It's legally very complex but on the morality and principle of it, I haven’t changed my view one little bit, which is that it would be right for Gary McKinnon to be tried in this country.”

Last week the Home Office said that Mrs May had decided to halt the legal process so she could re-examine impact of extradition on Mr McKinnon’s health.

The coalition Government also confirmed in its formal agreement it would conduct a comprehensive review of the controversial extradition treaty under which Mr McKinnon was set to be extradited.

he didn't even crack the systems, all he did was phone them up and ask for their ips and then use vnc and connected. barely a hacker.

A billet is a term for living quarters and the Teslaship has artificial gravity
as all nearby matter is under Tesla waves as the ship and crew are one
