I'll have a look at the EDM.

Dear Paul,

I was wondering if you might consider signing EDM 128 on reform of Britain's one side extradition treaty:
http://www.parliament.uk/edm/2012-13/128

Until the Extradition Act 2003, the state looking to extradite British citizens had to produce a prima-facie case, which means a case that is sufficient to call for an answer. Many human rights lawyers argue this is the best way to effectively extradite people and protect your citizens’ rights.

You are no doubt familiar with the cases of Babar Ahmad and Talha Ahsan & others who are demanding a fair trial in the UK and face being extradited perhaps in 3 weeks time. Both have served several years in a UK prison without having stood trial or been charged with any offence.

Best wishes, Adam J
