British computer hacker wins 10-year fight against extradition to US16/10/2012 - 12:38:35
Computer hacker Gary McKinnon won his 10-year fight against extradition today after Home Secretary Theresa May stepped in to halt proceedings.
Mrs May stopped his extradition on human rights ground after medical reports showed the 46-year-old was very likely to try to kill himself if extradited.
McKinnon was accused by US prosecutors of “the biggest military computer hack of all time”, but he claims he was simply looking for evidence of UFOs.
