More than 100,000 sign petition to stop extradition of Babar Ahmad

Issue No. 2277

Babar Ahmad’s campaign has achieved its aim of getting over 100,000 people to sign an e-petition against his extradition. More than 120,000 have now signed the petition calling for a parliamentary debate on Babar’s case.

The south London IT worker has been held without trial for seven years. He is fighting extradition to the US on trumped up terrorism charges.

The campaign wants supporters to continue getting signatures for the petition.
