Petition Amend Our Extradition Legislation As Promised

We call on the Government to honour the approach taken by both the Conservatives and Liberal Democrats when in opposition, and to bring into effect the 'forum' amendment (proposed in the Police & Justice Act 2006) to amend the Extradition Act 2003, to prevent the unnecessary and punitive extradition of UK citizens to foreign countries where the conduct alleged has taken place in part, or in whole, on UK soil. We further call on the Government to give urgent consideration to incorporating all of the recommendations of the 15th Report of the Joint Committee on Human Rights, published in June 2011, dealing with the UK's extradition arrangements and to publish and act upon the Home Office's extradition Review without delay.
