Babar Ahmad sent to Belmarsh

Issue No. 1945

The British IT worker facing extradition to the US, Babar Ahmad, has been moved from Woodhill to Belmarsh prison in south east London.

Babar faces trumped-up terrorism charges in the US. His wife, Mrs Ahmad, said that he had been given no reason for the move. Supporters will be protesting outside Babar’s extradition hearing on Monday 18 April. The protest is at 10am outside Bow Street magistrate’s court, London WC2.
