Substitute George Galloway for this guy
"Probable cause like, oh I don't know, the "accussed" admitting "it was me wot done it but I've got a syndrome so I can't help myself"
Did he? I don't think he did! He admitted accessing their computers. They claim he did MEGA damage, this is a lie needed to make the crime serious enough to extradite. He says he did zero damage. Their claim does not stack up, and since the court never sees their evidence, whether they can extradite under this process is never tested (also not in the US court, because the original reason for extradition can be changed later).
Think about it this way, imagine if George Galloway (labour MP hated by the Republicans, whom they made false allegations against) was wanted by Ashcroft for terrorism (the US Justice Dept chief who signed this).
They provide two pieces of information, the definition of the crime, showing it (Terrorism) is a serious crime, and details on how to identify George Galloway.
The piece missing is the evidence that George Galloway is a terrorist! The KEY PIECE OF EVIDENCE for an extradition is completely missing for the UK to US leg!
Now George's only protection is the Home Secretary, look at Alan Johnsons response to this. He's currently pretending that he cannot rescind Jacqui Smiths permission! Can George rely on Alan Johnson to protect him? Depends whether he's a friend or rival!
So you have no protection, and in fact this is NuLabour and even MPs have no protection from police raids with this lot in power. Nobody is safe under NuLabour, if this guy isn't safe.
Is it too friggin much to ask that you don't extradite people without evidence????
