Janis Sharp’s tearful tribute to Gary McKinnon supporters [video]

16 Oct 2012

An emotional but delighted Janis Sharp spoke at a press conference on Tuesday to celebrate the UK government's decision to reject an extradition request from the US for her son Gary McKinnon.

Sharp has been battling for ten years to save her son from extradition after he was accused of hacking into US government computer systems in 2002.

Earlier on Tuesday, home secretary Theresa May ruled that because McKinnon suffers from Asperger's Syndrome and was therefore a suicide risk it would be against his human rights to extradite him.
