    Hacker Gary McKinnon to appeal against US extradition

    December 10, 2009

    Computer hacker Gary McKinnon is mounting a fresh High Court challenge to stop his extradition to the US.

    Solicitor Karen Todner said papers were lodged with the High Court seeking a judicial review of the home secretary’s decision not to block his transfer.

    The home secretary has 14 days to respond before a judge considers it.

    Mr McKinnon, 43, who has Asperger’s syndrome, is accused of breaking into the US military computer system. He says he was seeking evidence of UFOs.

    Gary McKinnon Granted Review on Extradition Ruling

    Hacker granted review on extradition ruling
    By Jack Doyle, Press Association
    Wednesday, 13 January 2010

    A High Court judge will rule on whether Home Secretary Alan Johnson was wrong to allow the extradition of computer hacker Gary McKinnon, it was announced today. Mr McKinnon's lawyers have been granted permission for judicial review of Mr Johnson's decision that sending him to the US for trial would not breach his human rights. Gary McKinnon faces up to 70 years in jail if found guilty of hacking into Pentagon computers.

    His lawyer, Karen Todner, said she was "delighted" by the decision. A hearing is likely to take place in April or May. But she warned that Mr McKinnon, who suffers from a form of autism known as Asperger's Syndrome, was in a "very poor mental state" because of stress. She appealed to Mr Johnson to reverse his decision and asked US president Barack Obama to withdraw the request for extradition. She said in a statement: "I am delighted that the High Court has agreed to grant permission for the judicial review of Alan Johnson's decision to extradite Gary McKinnon. However, that is countered by the very poor mental state of Mr McKinnon due to the ongoing pressure of these proceedings. I would urge Mr Johnson to review his decision and I appeal to President Obama to withdraw the application for extradition. Mr McKinnon's suffering has gone on long enough."

    In November Mr Johnson rejected the application, saying he had "no general discretion" to refuse the request from the US government. Authorities in the US want Mr McKinnon to stand trial for hacking into top secret military computers. But the 43-year-old from Wood Green, north London, says he was looking for evidence of UFOs. Mr McKinnon's mother Janis Sharp said: "I can't believe it - some common sense at last. This judge has made such an honourable and decent decision. The relief is incredible, indescribable. We've fought for so long for compassion and understanding. Gary's health has badly declined, it's been traumatic to see. I hope this brings him comfort that the right decision will be made, even if it requires the courts to impose it rather than our Government to reach it."

    Nick Clegg Admits: I Might Not Have the Power to Stop Gary McKinnon's Extradition

    05-26-2010 03:07 AM

    'Stopping the extradition of Gary McKinnon to the U.S. may not be within the Government's power, Nick Clegg suggested yesterday.**
    The comment - his first intervention in the case since becoming Deputy Prime Minister - surprised supporters of the 44-year-old computer hacker because it was completely at odds with Mr Clegg's previously stated position.

    In opposition Mr Clegg, backed by independent legal advice, had argued fiercely that ministers could use human rights grounds to halt Gary's extradition to the States, where he faces up to 60 years behind bars. Last night campaigners said that, with trust in politicians at an all-time low, it was vital for Mr Clegg to keep his word.'

    Gary MacKinnon in the Leaks

    Prime minister made personal request to allow British man who hacked into US computer systems to serve sentence in UK

    WikiLeaks cables: US spurned Gary McKinnon plea from Gordon Brown

    Prime minister made personal request to allow British man who hacked into US computer systems to serve sentence in UK

    Tuesday 30 November 2010 10.00 GMT

    Leaked US embassy cables reveal that Gordon Brown unsuccessfully put his reputation as prime minister on the line in a plea to Washington that the computer hacker Gary McKinnon be allowed to serve any sentence in the UK.

    Brown's face-to-face attempt to strike a deal with the US ambassador was spurned by the Obama administration, in a humiliating diplomatic rebuff.

    Washington now appears to be just as intransigent with Brown's successor, David Cameron. The Cameron government has failed to announce whether or not it will comply with continued US demands to hand over McKinnon after he hacked into their government computers.

    The Labour chairman of parliament's home affairs committee, Keith Vaz, said: "A decision still has not been made on the case of Gary McKinnon more than six months after the home secretary said that the issue would be looked at."

    McKinnon's mother, Janis Sharp, is due to testify to Vaz's committee this morning as it launches a hearing into the extradition demands.

    Brown made his unsuccessful direct intervention in August 2009, according to a secret cable from the US ambassador in the UK, Louis Susman, to the secretary of state, Hillary Clinton.

    Susman wrote: "PM Brown, in a one-on-one meeting with the ambassador, proposed a deal: that McKinnon plead guilty, make a statement of contrition, but serve any sentence of incarceration in the UK. Brown cited deep public concern that McKinnon, with his medical condition, would commit suicide or suffer injury if imprisoned in a US facility."

    Secret document reveals PM met US Ambassador to discuss Scottish hacker

    A leaked American diplomatic document has revealed that former Prime Minister Gordon Brown met with the US Ambassador to discuss the case of Scottish computer hacker Gary McKinnon.

    Mr McKinnon is wanted in the US for computer hacking charges. He was arrested in 2002 after American prosecutors accused him of hacking into military computer systems, the Department of Defence and Nasa, as well as sabotaging American military systems after the September 11, 2001 terror attack.

    Mr McKinnon, who suffers from Asperger's syndrome, says his motivation for his unauthorised use of sensitive networks was to find information on UFOs held by the US government.

    A document that came to light on the Wikileaks website showed that Mr Brown had a one-to-one meeting with the US Ambassador in August 2009, and asked the US authorities to allow Mr McKinnon to serve any sentence in the UK if he admitted guilt and contrition for what he had done.

    Fresh blow for Gary McKinnon as President Obama refuses to halt extradition


    "Gary McKinnon’s hopes of avoiding extradition to the U.S. suffered a severe setback yesterday when Barack Obama declined to allow him to be tried in Britain.

    Campaigners had hoped the President would halt the legal proceedings because of the Asperger’s sufferer’s precarious mental state.

    But Mr Obama – despite previously saying he wanted to find an ‘appropriate solution’ to end the computer hacker’s ordeal – effectively endorsed the extradition process."

    Gary McKinnon, 43, with his mother Janis Sharp, 60. McKinnon, who has Asperger's syndrome, hacked into Pentagon computers

    "He said: ‘We have confidence in the British legal system coming to a just conclusion, and so we will await resolution and we will be respectful of that process.’

    Over the past decade, the British courts have repeatedly refused to block 45-year-old Mr McKinnon’s extradition, despite doctors saying he will kill himself if bundled on to a plane to the U.S.

    Judges have themselves agreed he is a suicide risk but – under the controversial Extradition Act, which is biased in favour of the U.S. – this is considered insufficient reason to halt proceedings.

    David Cameron raised his plight in face-to-face talks with Mr Obama yesterday morning. The two leaders were then questioned during a joint press conference at which the extradition was one of only a handful of subjects raised, alongside Libya and the Middle East.

    Campaigners say this shows the huge importance of the case, which has been the subject of the Daily Mail’s Affront to British Justice campaign.

    Shami Chakrabarti, director of Liberty, said: ‘If, as the President says, he will be “respectful” of our legal process, then he should be happy for Gary to be dealt with here in the UK.

    ‘If our Government seeks to honour the words of both Coalition partners in opposition, it will decide that Gary’s condition warrants halting this farcical extradition immediately, so that justice and compassion can be dispensed at home.’

    Mr McKinnon’s case began almost a decade ago when he hacked into Nasa and other military computers from the bedroom of his North London flat, searching for evidence of ‘little green men’.

    There are two ways of ending his ordeal. The first is for the U.S. to agree to allow him to be put on trial in the UK, where the crimes took place. The alternative is for the British courts or Home Secretary to rule that he cannot be extradited.

    Under the 2003 Extradition Act, it is very hard for Britain to stop the proceedings. This placed the focus on the U.S. helping to find a way out of the legal mess during Mr Obama’s visit.

    At a White House press conference last year, the President had raised the hopes of Mr McKinnon’s supporters by promising an ‘appropriate solution’. He said that, in dealing with the case, the U.S. would recognise Britain was an ‘ally that is unparalleled in terms of our co-operative relationship’.

    Yesterday, however, this language was replaced with the simple statement that America would respect the rule of British law. President Obama said: ‘We have proceeded through all the processes required under our extradition agreements. It’s now in the hands of the British legal system.’

    Mr Cameron said: ‘The case is in front of the Home Secretary (Theresa May), who has to consider reports about Gary’s health and his well-being and it is right that she does that in a proper and effectively quasi-judicial way.

    ‘I totally understand the anguish of his mother and family about this issue. We must follow the proper processes and make sure this case is dealt with in the proper way and I am sure that is the case.’

    Mr McKinnon’s mother Janis Sharp tried to find some positives from Mr Obama’s words. She said: ‘I am happy because President Obama has confirmed that it is a UK decision and the United States will accept it and not contest it.

    ‘But we are tired and worn into the ground and really expected our family’s torment to be over this month. We so need an end to it.’

    So far, the Americans have repeatedly refused to allow Mr McKinnon to be tried in the UK. Cables released by WikiLeaks revealed that the U.S. ambassador had rejected a personal plea from then prime minister Gordon Brown for him to be imprisoned in Britain.

    The U.S. has taken an equally robust position with the Coalition.

    This month U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder said the administration would ‘take all of the necessary steps’ to have Mr McKinnon extradited and ‘held accountable for the crimes that he committed’.

    Mr McKinnon’s solicitor Karen Todner said: ‘I hope the British justice system does now support Gary and stop this misery that he and his family are going through.’

    Nasa Hacker Gary Mckinnon's New Development

    5/25/2011 - The mother of computer hacker Gary McKinnon has welcomed comments by President Barack Obama about her son's possible extradition to the US.

    Janis Sharp, who is fighting to keep her son in the UK, described the president's words as "very positive".

    Mr Obama, who is on a state visit to the UK, said he would "respect" the British legal process.

    Glasgow-born Mr McKinnon, who has Asperger's syndrome, is accused of hacking US military computer systems.

    The 45-year-old - who lives in north London - faces up to 60 years in jail for hacking into Pentagon and Nasa computers between February 2001 and March 2002. He does not deny hacking into the systems but insists he was seeking evidence of UFOs.

    Gary McKinnon is Mentally Fit For Extradition Says Doctor in Report - 28 March 2012

    Wednesday 28 March 2012

    New evidence seen by Channel 4 News suggests Gary McKinnon is mentally fit enough to be extradited. But the report is by an expert who previously said McKinnon would likely commit suicide if deported.


    Mr McKinnon (pictured) has fought for more than a decade to stop the government extraditing him to the US on computer hacking charges. The decision over whether to reject the request for his transfer across the Atlantic has hinged on the likelihood of him trying to take his own life.

    He is wanted by the US authorities on charges of hacking into Nasa and Pentagon computers from his home in north London in the months following 9/11.

    Three years ago, Mr McKinnon's legal team commissioned Prof Declan Murphy to carry out a psychiatric examination of the 46-year-old, as they fought to prove that the Asperger's sufferer would likely commit suicide if he was extradited.

    And Professor Murphy's evaluation of Mr McKinnon appeared to firmly support the lawyers' argument that transiting him to America would be in breach of European convention.

    The King's College academic concluded that unless the patient he had seen was under constant supervision if he was to be imprisoned in the US, he would almost certainly attempt suicide.

    Last year, the Home Office - which will ultimately decide whether to green-light his extradition - also hired Professor Murphy to give his professional opinion on Mr McKinnon, even though he had not seen the Scottish hacker since writing his original report.

    Sources say the report will represent "the final word" in Home Secretary Theresa May's decision, even though four other experts have also submitted evaluations, having seen Mr McKinnon face-to-face in recent months and years.

    Channel 4 News has seen Prof Murphy's two reports - the one from 2009 and the one from the end of last year - and the contrast between them is stark.

    In his 2009 report commissioned by Mr McKinnon's family, Professor Murphy warned: "If Mr McKinnon is deported to the US, he will require - in my opinion - continual observation on a one-one basis during that time period, and for the rest of his incarceration. If this does not happen, he is likely to make a serious attempt at suicide.

    That assessment appears to have changed drastically by last year, when he makes no recommendation for one-to-one, round-the-clock observation of Mr McKinnon.

    In the report commissioned by the Home Office he writes: "The risk of actual self-harm could be ameliorated by regular contact with mental health professionals with supportive counselling and listening services of the type that are available within UK prisons."

    And. asked by the Home Office to assess the chances of Mr McKinnon killing himself if his deportation was granted, Prof Murphy plays down the possibility by describing how his suicide plans were far-fetched and poorly thought out.

    "Suicide plans are not well formulated, e.g. he initially informed Dr Vermeulen about an elaborate plan to harm himself involving potassium chloride and electric shock, though he then gave contradictory accounts of his level of knowledge about the likely fatal dose of potassium chloride," he writes.

    It's an in absentia report and it contradicts his previous face-to-face report. It's a mystery to everyone - Janis Sharp

    But Professor Murphy he makes no mention of a conversation he had with his patient three years earlier - included in his original report - in which Mr McKinnon stated he would kill himself by overdosing on sleeping tablets, an arguably less "elaborate" plan.

    Professor Murphy said that he could not comment on Mr McKinnon's case while it is still being considered by the Home Secretary.

    Human rights lawyer, Julian Knowles QC, said that there is no conflict of interest regarding Professor Murphy's reports for both the McKinnon family and the Home Office.

    "There is no property in a witness. A witness is not owned by either side. The witness is under obligation not to reveal privileged matters that are confidential, but there is no problem in speaking to either side," he said.

    But Mr McKinnon's mother, Janis Sharp, said she could not understand why Professor Murphy's conclusions appeared to have changed, particularly as her son had refused to see the pychiatrist for almost three years.

    "He's obviously changed his mind," she said.

    And referring to reports of Mr McKinnon's mental state by other experts, she added: "What basis could he possibly have to go against the expert opinions of four of the top people in the country, who say that Gary will absolutely take his own life. It's an in absentia report and it contradicts his previous face-to-face report. What did he base this on? It's a mystery to everyone."

    Ms Sharp said that the contents of Professor Murphy's latest evaluation had upset her son.

    "To suddenly have Professor Murphy say the opposite for no reason that anyone can fathom has shaken Gary to the core," she said.

    FactCheck: Is the US-UK extradition treaty unfair?

    Shami Chakrabarti, director of civil liberties campaign group Liberty, told Channel 4 News that the dissimilarities in Professor Murphy's two reports calls into question the Home Office's handling of Mr McKinnon’s extradition case.

    "I think there are obviously questions now about Professor Murphy’s second report: it’s so contrasting with the first report which was based on an interview with Gary McKinnon," she said.

    "I'm interested in what makes a senior consultant psychiatrist, having seen a patient [and concluded that] they have a fixed idea that suicide is the best outcome for them, to switch to saying there's only a moderate risk of suicide.

    "I don't think it's a coincidence that a psychiatrist who's seen a patient and written a report then speaks to the home office and waters down the report."

    Ms Chakrabarti added: "If all the Home Office has got to say that Gary McKinnon is fit for extradition is the evidence of an expert who contradicts his earlier evidence on [his] vulnerability, I think it's impossible for the home office to extradite this man."

    As recently as this month, David Cameron raised Mr McKinnon's plight with US President Barack Obama. And in opposition, the prime minister backed his bid to be tried in the UK.

    In a statement, the home office said:

    "After consulting the Chief Medical Officer, the Home Secretary instructed two independent experts to review the case and their report was sent to Mr McKinnon's representatives on 24 February in line with the directions of the court. Mr McKinnon and his legal team have until 6 April to respond and make any further representations.

    "The Home Secretary will consider the report alongside all other relevant material and aims to reach a decision as soon as is consistent with dealing fairly and properly with this case."

    Further inconsistencies between the reports

    Suicidal, but not hopeless?

    2009: "With regards to the future, Mr McKinnon stated that he was not confident about his future in that he expects to be deported…[he] stated that as a result…he would be very likely to face a very long prison sentence – approximately 60 years…I asked Mr McKinnon how he felt about this outcome and he stated 'I don’t even plan to go over there. I'll top myself. They treat you worse than animals. I couldn't face it – I couldn't stand being bullied at school, so I definitely could not stand being jailed. I don't think I'd be protected. I’d top myself before I go.'"

    2011: "At an appointment with [me], he did not express significant hopelessness or helplessness.

    US prisons

    2009: "I cannot comment in an expert way on Mr McKinnon’s ability to cope with a custodial sentence within an American prison – as I have no experience of American prisons."

    2011: "The arrangements made for transit to the US…refer to supervised transit to a detention centre which has psychiatry, psychology and counselling services available. From a psychiatric viewpoint, these arrangements appear, at face value, to be adequate and…are compatible with UK standards."

    Treatment of Asberger's

    2009: "There are relatively few specialist inpatient units (in Britain) for people with an ASD and a normal intelligence who have significant forensic histories. However, one such facility does exist."

    2011: "Individuals with autistic/Asperger traits are overrepresented in the prison population, and it is not unusual for prison mental health clinicians to have to deal with such individuals or, indeed, with a wide range of complex cases."

    Gary McKinnon hacking prosecution called 'ridiculous' by US defence expert

    Here is an update on the accused hacker Gary McKinnon:

    Gary McKinnon hacking prosecution called 'ridiculous' by US defence expert

    Hackers like McKinnon should be recruited, not prosecuted, if the US wants to dominate cyber warfare, one expert says.

    Rory Carroll in Monterey

    A US government adviser on cyber warfare has criticised the efforts to extradite the computer hacker Gary McKinnon from Britain, saying such people should be embraced rather than prosecuted.

    John Arquilla, a professor of defence analysis at the US Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, California, said the US authorities were squandering a potentially invaluable human resource and that his extradition would not deter other hackers.

    "Personally I think it's ridiculous. And punitive. They're attempting to create a deterrent effect that will not deter and is slowing our progress," he said in an interview with the Guardian.

    McKinnon, of Wood Green, north London, claims he was looking for evidence of UFOs when he hacked into 97 Nasa and Pentagon computers from his flat in 2002. His case has become lightning rod in Britain for campaigners against the UK-US extradition treaty, which they say is one-sided.

    McKinnon, who has Asperger's syndrome, was arrested in June 2005, and an order for extradition was made in July 2006. The case has dragged through the courts since then.

    Arquilla said the US government should think about hiring rather than prosecuting hackers like McKinnon. "There are other places in the world where these communities are embraced by official authority, and these are places that are becoming great cyber powers. The analogy is as if after world war two the Russians were using these rocket scientists while we put the ones we got on trial and incarcerated them."

    He said there were some people in the US government who shared his view that hackers should be hired, not prosecuted. "There are good people in many different departments of the US government that are open to this idea, but they are a tiny minority."

    Arquilla said that because of hackers' backgrounds in illicit activities, it is hard to get them security clearance. "How can we have a master hacker in our system if we can't get clearance? We have to create a new kind of institutional culture that allows us to reach out to these diverse kind of actors."

    Not all at the Naval Postgraduate School were as keen on master hackers. Dorothy Denning, an information security expert at the college's department of defence analysis, expressed compassion for McKinnon but balked at the idea of recruiting him. "It's a sad case. He obviously has some personal problems. I wouldn't want to hire him. But maybe he is someone who doesn't belong in prison either."

    She acknowledged the skill of certain hackers but ruled out hiring them if they were committing illegal acts. "It's one thing snooping into other people's computers when you're 13, 16, 18, but if you're still doing that when you are 30 or 40, that's something else."



    Mother of Gary McKinnon, Janis Sharp talks to George Galloway

    Published on 10 Jun 2012 by OwilsonO

    Janis Sharp, Gary McKinnon's mum speaks to George Galloway about Gary, Aspergers and the 10 year wait for justice. In 2002, while looking for evidence of UFOs, Gary discovered that many many NASA and Pentagon computers had no passwords setup or firewalls installed. Shocked by this he left numerous notes warning them that their security was deeply flawed. In response to this America demanded Gary's extradition to face 60 years in an American prison. Janis has been fighting for her son ever since.
