The family of Babar Ahmad, the south London IT worker who faces extradition to the US on trumped up terrorism charges, learned recently that home secretary Charles Clarke has applied for another two month extension to make his decision.

The British authorities are communicating with the US on issues which were brought up by Babar’s defence team during hearings.

Mrs Ahmad, Babar Ahmad’s wife said, “This may be a good sign that the home office is taking matters seriously enough to be asking the US further questions about issues which have arisen through Babar’s case.

“We hope that we receive a decision soon that Babar should not be extradited to the US.”
