Marc Emery Stop-Extradition Petitions tabled by MPs from three parties Members of Parliament from three parties -- Conservative, Liberal, and New Democrat -- tabled petitions with thousands of signatures seeking to stop the extradition to the US of online marijuana seed seller, Marc Emery. --- House of Commons - Monday, March 15, 2010 The three MP's who displayed personal integrity by presenting the petitions are: * Ontario Conservative MP Scott Reid of Ontario * Vancouver South Liberal MP Ujjal Dosanjh * Vancouver East NDP MP Libby Davies These MP's deserve our admiration for standing up for an issue of national sovereignty and disproportionate punishment when so many others look the other way.
'US will want Assange extradited for crimes they're inventing now' Sweden-based journalist Al Burke says that if WikiLeaks' Julian Assange is extradited to Sweden from the UK, "whatever happens as a result of the trial, the US will probably request that he be extradited for the crimes they are trying to invent now." Assange, founder of the whistleblower website WikiLeaks, is still wanted in Sweden on *** assault charges and could be extradited there from Britain. But there have been reports that the US also wants him on charges of espionage. Al Burke believes there is a strong political agenda behind Assange's case. RT on Facebook: RT on Twitter:

Assange extradition highly political WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange's extradition hearing to determine whether he will be sent to Sweden began Feb 7 in London. Assange's lawyers argued based on Sweden's past, Assange's eventual extradition to the United States would be much more likely, and thus so would the possibility of facing the death penalty. Douglas McNabb, an attorney and expert in international extraditions explained it is possible Assange could face the death penalty, but it would depend on the charges. That being said, it is unlikely Sweden or any other European country would extradite him to the US without assurances he would not receive the death penalty.

Viktor Bout Extradition Hearing ZHANG: Today's top story...an extradition hearing is being held at a court in Thailand for suspected Russian arms dealer Viktor Bout. Washington wants Bout extradited to the US because he is suspected of trying to sell weapons to Colombia's FARC rebels. STORY: Russian arms dealer Viktor Bout appeared in Bangkok's Criminal Court today to face another extradition hearing. US authorities have urged Bangkok to extradite Bout to New York, where he could stand trial for conspiracy to sell millions of dollars of weapons to Colombia's FARC rebels, which the United States says could be used to kill Americans in Colombia. Bout, dubbed the "Merchant of Death" by the media, arrived in orange prison garb, with his ankles shackled. Bout said in a statement handed out by his wife, Alla Bout, that his arrest was the result of a frame-up operation by the US intelligence. He said he has never been to the US or Colombia and has never committed any crime there. He also accused Thailand of detaining him in a prison in extremely inhumane conditions. Bout was arrested in a Bangkok hotel in a Thai-American sting operation after arriving from Moscow in March last year. He has denied any wrongdoing and says he was merely a businessman involved in the aviation industry. His previous hearing in December was rescheduled to March 6 after two defense witnesses failed to turn up. Bout's lawyers argue their client was illegally detained by Thai and American officials. US prosecutors say Bout has been ...

Thaksin owns UK football club Manchester City and has a property in a posh London district.

Thailand to extradite 'arms smuggler' An appeal court in Thailand has ruled to extradite Viktor Bout, a suspected Russian arms smuggler, to the US, effectively ending a more than decade-long chase for the man dubbed "the merchant of death". The decision overturns a lower court's rejection of the US extradition request. The court said Bout must be extradited within three months or would be free to return to Russia. Bout, a 43-year-old former Soviet air force officer, is reputed to be one of the world's most prolific arms dealers. He has allegedly supplied weapons that fuelled civil wars in South America, the Middle East and Africa. The US has been lobbying intensely for Bout to be kept in custody - leading to accusations of political interference. Al Jazeera's Wayne Hay reports from Bangkok. [August, 20, 2010]

Alex Stone Blind Man Extradition Strory. Alex Stone is a blind computer science graduate from south London who had worked for a bank for ten years. In May 2003 he joined an email list for blind people, and started chatting to a woman called Alma from Kansas City. They started talking regularly on the phone as well as emailing each other. After a few months they decided they wanted to meet, so Alex made plans to fly out to Kansas City and spend a holiday with Alma that August. In 2003, as his friendship with Alma was blossoming, Alex Stone was still blissfully unaware of the world of political treaties. Alex and Alma spent a wonderful fortnight together, and Alex met Alma's son, one-year-old Zachary. In the light of his new relationship, he decided to take the redundancy offer he'd been made, and to move out to the US to be with Alma: 'It was exactly what I wanted to do; I wanted to go and live out there and be with her'. Alex sorted out his life in the UK and flew back to Kansas City in November 2003. He hadn't been there long when the trouble began. Zachary developed a cold that wouldn't get better. He was clearly unwell, so Alma's mother took him to hospital to be looked at. While he was there, the doctors decided to X-ray him, and discovered that both of his arms and both of his legs were broken. Alma rushed to hospital to be with Zachary, and Alex stayed at home in her apartment. But over the next four or five days, Alex began to feel uncomfortable, and gradually realised that suspicion ...

Assange Extradition Reveals Total Hypocrisy & Political Bias Of British Justice On June 28, 1971, Daniel Ellsberg was arrested for his role in stealing the Pentagon Papers, a collection of classified documents that revealed the US government had been systematically lying to the American people about the Vietnam War. As for why The New York Times had a right to publish the Pentagon Papers, Justice Hugo Black composed one of the most famous paragraphs in Supreme Court case history: "Only a free and unrestrained press can effectively expose deception in government. And paramount among the responsibilities of a free press is the duty to prevent any part of the government from deceiving the people and sending them off to distant lands to die of foreign fevers and foreign shot and shell." /// The WikiLeaks founder says the charges are baseless and if extradited, he believes he will not face a fair trial. Assange posed some interesting questions: "Why is it that I am subject, a non-profit free-speech activist, to a US$360000 bail? Why is it that I am kept under electronic house arrest when I have not even been charged in any country?" And he is not the only one asking those questions, particularly as the British government has a history of granting asylum to some fairly controversial characters, including Russian business tycoon Boris Berezovsky who has blood of many on his hands. Berezovsky later said he had been trying to overthrow the Russian government, using the UK as his base. "It shows here the hypocrisy of the British court. Berezovsky has quite ...
