affairs, to speak the truth, to remain faithful and to benefit our communities
The British courts are renowned for their judicious and equitable nature.

About Babar's Case
Babar Ahmad a British Citizen - is the UK's longest detainee without charge
having been in prison since 5th August 2004 - over 7 years! The average prison
sentence for rape is around 8 years and even less for manslaughter!
He is held under the UK's controversial Extradition Act 2003 which allows
British Citizens to be extradited to the U.S for alleged offences that took

Parliament, Joint Committee on Human Rights urged the UK government to change
the law so that Babar Ahmad’s perpetual threat of extradition is ended without
There is an official e-petition urging the UK government to put Babar Ahmad on
trial in the UK instead of extraditing him to the US. Babar Ahmad is the longest
held British Citizen without trial in the modern history of the UK, having been
held under the Extradition Act 2003 since 5th August 2004.
Ashfaq Ahmad, father of Babar Ahmad said, “That British Citizens accused of
committing crimes in the UK can be extradited to the US in cases where the CPS
has found no evidence to charge them in this country. During the past few weeks,
over 70,000 people have signed our e-petition urging the government to put Babar
on trial in the UK instead of extraditing him to the US. This indicates the
level of public outrage about Babar’s case.”
Don't delay, express your concern at Babar’s case and demonstrate to the
government that they must listen and take action - he needs a 100,000 signatures
