Hacker McKinnon’s extradition decision delayed until after ‘all-consuming’ Olympic games

• By Alan Travis, The Guardian

Home Office lawyers told the high court in London on Tuesday that the delay was needed because of May’s “all-consuming involvement in the Olympic security” and her preference to announce the final decision when parliament was sitting.

Two high court judges said a hearing for a full judicial review of that decision would be “pencilled in” for late November. The judicial review hearing could be unusual in that medical experts may be called to give oral evidence in court.
Janis Sharp, his mother, said the further delay was “morally wrong” as McKinnon, 46, could not cope any longer after a 10-year campaign against his extradition.
