British Justice

On 5 April 2012, Barbar Ahmad became the first prisoner in a British jail to be interviewed on television from behind bars in this BBC broadcast.

He has been held for eight years in a UK jail without charge or trial, during which time he has been fighting extradition to the United States under controversial “war on terror” legislation. If he has done anything wrong, as a British citizen he asks that he be tried in his own country.

MP Caroline Lucas, who has called for a public inquiry, says, “Babar Ahmad’s case shames us all.” To learn more about Babar Ahmad’s case, go to http://freebabarahmad.com

  1. I didn’t watch this but I did watch the TV interview. This is an outrage and is just proving that the population of these 4 countries cannot trust the British government to protect them from bully boy tactics of America and Europe. When will native citizens realise this and do something about it. Just remember these ‘crimes’ were not committed in the US. He should be tried here, end of story, otherwise British Justice !!!! what British Justice?
