Lauri Love wins interest opposite extradition to US

UK CITIZEN and online romantic Lauri Love will not be extradited to a US to face hacking charges, the High Court ruled on Monday.

Lawyers for 32-year-old Love, who suffers from autism, had argued that he should be attempted for his purported crimes in a UK and that he would be during risk of murdering himself if sent to a US. Love also suffered from Asperger’s syndrome, anxiety, basin and “obsessive behaviours”. 

On Monday, a UK’s Lord Chief Justice and Mr Justice Ouseley said that Love should not be extradited to a US to mount trial, observant it would not be in a “interests of justice” for a series of reasons, including a “high risk” that he would kill himself.

However, they pronounced it would “not be oppressive” to “prosecute Mr Love in England for a offences”.

Emma Norton, conduct of Legal Casework for Liberty, who intervened in a case, applauded a ruling.

“Where wrong activity is purported to have taken place in a UK, those suspected should be attempted in a UK – not packaged off to unknown countries and unknown authorised systems. This is generally critical in cases of exposed people like Lauri Love,” she said.

“We are gay that a justice has currently recognized Lauri’s vulnerability, tighten family connectors to a UK and a potentially inauspicious consequences of extraditing him.

“This was a box that could have been prosecuted here and it’s ashamed that Lauri and his family have been put by this terrible ordeal.” µ
