Gary McKinnon to be extradited

Bookmark and Share

by Darren Allan

The “will he or won’t he” legal battle has been ongoing for some time, but it now seems NASA hacker Gary McKinnon is going to be extradited to the US.

Despite pleas from a number of groups, including a government committee, the Home Secretary Alan Johnson has refused to halt his impending extradition.

This is after considering fresh evidence of McKinnon’s seriously deteriorating mental health.

According to a report in the Guardian, McKinnon’s lawyers said that extradition would make his death “virtually certain”.

McKinnon has always claimed that his hacking was merely a search for any information he might find on alien technology or UFOs.
