For 7 years a British Citizen has been imprisoned without trial. His name is Babar Ahmad.
His case demonstrates the fearful future of a distorted justice system that fails to protect its own citizens.
Babar Ahmed is still fighting extradition to the USA, under the controversial no-evidence-required Extradition Act 2003, a legislation that allows the US to seek extradition of British citizens without having to provide any evidence first. This is all despite the fact that the UK Crown Prosecution Service declared in July 2004 and December 2006, as did the UK Attorney General Lord Goldsmith in September 2006, that there was 'insufficient evidence' to charge Babar Ahmad with any criminal offence under UK law.
Restless Beings is a humanitarian organisation seeking to provide a voice for voiceless, marginalised and silenced communities around the world. This is a call for action in the name of justice and equality. Babar Ahmed, as a British Citizen deserves British Justice. That consists of a fair and open trial and the opportunity to portray his defence.
This is not about innocence or guilt, but the right to stand before a fair trial and have all the evidence bought to light, in the UK.
For the case to be discussed and reviewed in Parliament, 100,000 signatures are needed for the petition. There are just 9 days left to reach the required number of signatures.
If there is one thing you do today, sign this petition and encourage your friends/family to do the same.
Help make a difference to a man's life and to the justice system of this country.
