Legality of extradition

The High Court, on 14 January 2010, appears to consider the Home Secretary's assessment as being unfair and misguided. The new report from the psychiatrist Professor J. Turk highlighted "exceptionally high risk of self-harm and even suicide" and should have given more pre-eminent weight than the HS did.
The decision is not yet published on BAIILI, but the one of 31 July 2009, before that new evidence was brought in in October 2009, is on the website.
New hopes then for Mr. McKinnon which I hoped will not be dashed.
